However, the poor treatment of the team has become a matter of concern, with reports suggesting travel arrangements have equally not been the best.

Footballmadeinghana reports that the technical team was forced to resort to taxis to the airport ahead of the 2nd leg.

According to the report, the playing body was also transported to the airport in a rickety bus, following a weird decision to reduce the number of players from 22 to 18.

Although some players reportedly complained about the condition of the bus, they had no choice than to manage it.

There are also reports that some foreign-based players were asked to buy their own tickets to fly to Ghana for the game.

The Black Meteors left Ghana Sunday, September 8 for Ivory Coast, where they are expected to transit for six more hours before landing in Algeria on Monday, September 9.
