Ghana have invited 28 players for the next phase of preparations for the upcoming African Nations Championship qualifiers.

The all-home-based team is set to open camp at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram on Monday.

Ghana play away to Burkina Faso in the second round of the Chan qualifiers on August 11 before hosting the second leg a week later.
