The Black Stars of Ghana will reportedly camp in Turkey ahead of their crucial encounter against fellow African giants Egypt next month.

Avram Grant's men are set to take on Egypt in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria on the 13th of November 2016.

According to Football Ghana, Black Stars head coach Grant asked for a three-day camping period in Turkey before they take on the Pharaohs.

The experienced Israeli tactician is under pressure after Ghana started the final round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying with a draw against Uganda at home.

As a result the Black Stars are placed second on Group E standings with one point. Group leaders Egypt are two points ahead.

Uganda's Cranes and the Red Devils of Congo-Brazzaville are placed third and fourth respectively on the Group E standings.

Only the group winners will book their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals which will be hosted by Russia. (
