The Black Satellites will pitch camp in New Zealand ahead of the FIFA World Youth Championship (WYC), scheduled from May 30-June 20 in the same country.
The Black Satellites, bronze medalist at the just ended African Youth Championship (AYC), in Senegal are expected to set pre-tournament base in New Zealand for six weeks.
Information gathered by GNA Sports indicates that the selection of camp location was influenced by the weather conditions expected during the 24-team tournament.
According to the information, the weather conditions are expected to be cold during the competition that has Ghana, Nigeria, Mali and Senegal as Africa’s representatives.
The Satellites are expected to feature in a four-nation tournament as part of preparations for the competition in which they are housed in Group B alongside Argentina, Panama and Austria.
The mini competition is expected to feature Brazil and two other countries who have all qualified for the three-week gathering.
Ghana became the only African team to win the competition when Sellas Tetteh led the Black Satellites to conquer the continent and the globe in Rwanda and Egypt respectively in 2009.
