Ghana’s U20 left Accra on Wednesday night for Italy to prepare for the FIFA World Youth Championship.

The Black Satellites will be based at the Novara Training Centre-where they camped before the 2013 African Youth Championship.

A 26-man squad including two foreign based stars Frank Acheampong and Daniel Pappoe made the trip.

This will be their second visit to the plush training complex after spending ten days in the Northern Italy province before the African U20 Championship which was played in March.

Ghana are scheduled to play Kosovo, Brazil and Egypt on their European tour before their opener against France on 21 June.

The Satellites will also face Spain and USA in Group A.

Ghana won the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup in Egypt under current coach Sellas Tetteh.
