Ghana are lining up an international friendly against newly-crowned Asian champions Australia next month in England, Africanfootball.com has reported.
The Black Stars want to take advantage of the FIFA free date next month and play exhibition games in London.
The match has been tentatively fixed for 23 March at a yet-to-be announced venue. “We want to play two matches in March and we are talking to Australia,” a high-profile Ghana FA official told Africanfootball.com on the condition of anonymity.
“Nigeria have also forwarded a proposal and we are considering playing the Super Eagles also in London.”
Ghana are seeking to build on the impressive performance which saw them win silver at the just ended 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Black Stars will begin the qualifiers to the 2017 Nations Cup finals which start in June thus year.
