President John Mahama gave no reason for the order, but it comes after Ghana finished bottom of Group G with just one draw to show from three games.

In addition to the Black Stars' poor performance on the pitch, the 23-man squad went on strike over unpaid fees and Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng were sent home for arguing with coach Kwesi Appiah.
