[BRAZIL 2014] Ghana, which opens against the USA June 16 in Natal, is settled in the Netherlands after beating a local team of all-stars, 6-1, Friday night in the Black Stars' send-off game in Accra. Tiny forward Christian Atsu led the Black Stars with a hat trick.

Atsu, who plays in the Netherlands for Vitesse, scored twice in the first 10 minutes as the Black Stars opened up a 5-0 lead at the half. Jordan Ayew, Albert Adomah and Sulley Muntari also scored.

Only Muntari did not travel with the team to its Dutch camp in Arnhem. He was scheduled to arrive on Monday after attending to family matters. Kevin-Prince Boateng, who skipped the Accra camp, is now with the team.

Ghana first half: Stephen Adams, Samuel Inkoom, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jerry Akaminko, Jonathan Mensah, Afriyie Acquah, Adomah, Agyemang Badu, Ayew, Atsu, David Accam.
