The Stars who have been engaged in many activities at their training camp have had series of on and off field activities including beach jogging session and gym session to prepare well in anticipation of ending the 37-year trophy drought at the continental showpiece.

Coach Kwesi Appiah and his technical team would use the two friendlies to assess his team before the competition.
