The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee has denied media reports which suggests that, the Black Stars were stranded in Kenya, during the camping ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Ethiopia.

A statement from the Committee said, the Black Stars did not pitch camp in Naivasha and cannot be stranded in a city they have not visited.

"The technical team and the players that arrived Monday morning in Nairobi were bused from Jomo Kenyatta airport in Nairobi to a five-star City Lodge Hotel," it added.

It said, the itineraries drawn to get the players to report to camp were done with the approval of each of the players and their respective clubs as well as the technical handlers of the Black Stars, hence the assertion that flight tickets could not get to the players on time is untenable.

The statement however noted that, all Nineteen (19) players invited are currently in camp at the team’s base in Nairobi.

It said, the team would depart for Addis Ababa Friday to continue preparations for Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia.
