Black Stars of Ghana Activities For December Ahead of AFCON In January

The month of December has many to offer the Black Stars of Ghana ahead of Africa Cup of Nations, January 2022. There is a busy schedule for Milovan Rajevac and his lads, which commences this month. 

In this month, Milovan Rajevac will be announcing his squad to hit the grounds running for the continental showpiece. The list must come out early for teams to fill the possible lacuna that will be come forth due to the tournament.

The yet-to-be announced squad will be made up of foreign and local players. As reported earlier, some five local players have been penciled for call up. Players who have excelled in recent games have a huge advantage of making the number and the final cut. In the quest to win the continental competition, Milovan Rajevac is required to parade the best material capable of conquering remaining teams and annex the ultimate. Players who have had an active season are deemed fit to the upcoming rigorous assignment. 

With the call up, the Serbian tactician could opt for more players and prune down later, or make a final call up while some players are put on waiting list. Those players on standby will be called upon as and when unforeseen situations crop up. Previous head coaches had varied ways of drawing a list for a tournament of this nature. Depending on his preferences, a bulk number of players could come on board or the other way round. 

Black Stars will embark on camping for the competition this month. Since the Nations Cup kicks off in January, it is appropriate and mandatory for the Senior National team to assemble either in Ghana or beyond the territories and prepare adequately. For the purposes of cohesion and telepathy, it inures to the benefit of a team if it is able to go for early camping ahead of a major tournament. 

Also in December, coach Milovan Rajevac and his henchmen - as part of preparations - are obliged to play preparatory matches to assess the readiness of the his players. Such a schedule could either be against a low profile team or a strong opponent. The team’s location for camping will have an impact on the type of opposition to engage. A local camping will require a local team while an international camping demands a foreign side. 

Milovan Rajevac knows how delicate his targets are, and the associated ramifications in the case of a dross performance in Nations Cup.
