| |
The Black Stars have touched down in Natal ahead of their 2014 World Cup group G opening encounter against USA at the Estadio das Dunas on Monday night.

Coach Kwesi Appiah and his entourage arrived in rain-soaked coastal resort, Natal via the Augusto Severo International Airport after an over four-hour flight from their base in Maceio. Natal has over the past two days seen some heavy downpour.

The Black Stars are scheduled to have a feel of the match venue - Estadio das Dunas with training  set for 9pm which will be preceded by a mandatory 30-minute pre-match presser with the media at the same venue. Head coach Kwesi Appiah and captain Asamoah Gyan will be in attendance.
A greater majority of the 500 sponsored Ghanaian fans and journalists through the Ministry of Sports’ private funding initiative have arrived in Natal. Since last Thursday, Ghanaian fans have been flying from Accra to Brazil via Ethiopian Airways.

Ghana will be hoping to begin their 2014 World Cup campaign with a win over the United States when Swedish referee Jonas Eriksson blows his whistle from 10pm on Monday night.
