The Black Stars, Ghana’s national football team, are gearing up for their upcoming FIFA World Cup Matchday 3 qualifier against Mali.

The team is set to depart Accra for Bamako on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

Led by Coach Otto Addo, the Black Stars have been rigorously training in Accra for the past four days to prepare for this crucial match. The game is scheduled to take place at the Stade 26 Mars in Bamako, with the kick-off time set for 19:00 GMT.

Ghana is currently aiming to return to their winning form following a mixed start in Group I of the World Cup qualifiers. The team began their campaign with a 1-0 victory over Madagascar in Kumasi but subsequently suffered a 1-0 defeat to Comoros in Moroni.

Presently, the Black Stars are positioned 4th in Group I. The team is hopeful that securing victories in their upcoming matches, particularly the one against Mali, will significantly boost their chances of qualifying for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. This prestigious tournament is set to be hosted by the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

Following the match against Mali, Ghana will face the Central African Republic at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday, June 10, 2024.
