"Ghana did not reject the team hotel allocated by Caf contrary to media reports. The Black Stars are here. Those are fake news," the Ghana FA statement read.

"Ghana have not rejected the training pitch also. The team arrived last night and are yet to observe the pitch, contrary to a media report," the statement added.

Ghana will open their account on Tuesday against Uganda before facing Mali four days later, as they seek to end their 35-year run without a major silverware.
