The Ghana Football Association has confirmed that the Black Stars will play African champions Egypt next month at the Cairo International Stadium in an international friendly.
The Black Stars were chosen by the Egyptian Football Association to hand the Pharaohs the needed test before the resumption of the 2010 joint Nations Cup/World Cup qualifiers. The 11 February friendly date is the first of Fifa free dates in the New Year.
The Nigeria Football Association earlier claimed they had clinched a deal with the GFA for another Super Eagles-Black Stars encounter. Ghana will begin their campaign against the Squirrels of Benin on home soil in Group D.
