Accra, Oct. 10, GNA – The senior national
team, the Black Stars, will engage Ghana Premier League (GPL) giants, Asante
Kotoko on Friday, October 12, after the cancellation of their double header of
the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Sierra Leone.

The decision to play Asante Kotoko in a
friendly, comes about after the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) on
Tuesday, informed Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) Normalization Committee
about the cancellation of the double header after Sierra Leone Football
Association (SLFA) and Sierra Leone governmental authorities, failed to meet
the conditions of Football’s World governing body, FIFA, to revert their
earlier suspension over government interference.

In a letter signed by Samson Adamu, Director
of Competition at CAF said, “the CAN 2019 Qualifier match no. 65 (Ghana vs
Sierra Leone) & 89 (Sierra Leone vs Ghana) on the 11th and 14th
of October respectively have been cancelled.”

“Due to the fact that the Sierra Leone
Football Association (SLFA), did not meet the conditions stipulated in the
letter sent by CAF on FIFA’s decision to suspend the federation.

“As a result, all officials appointed for
match no 89 (Sierra Leone vs Ghana) are not to travel as their mission has been
canceled, likewise, the officials who have travelled for Match no 65 (Ghana vs
Sierra Leone) are requested to travel back home since the match has been
cancelled.”

Meanwhile, the Black Stars – Kotoko friendly
slated for Baba Yara Sports Stadium would be free of charge and kick starts at
16:00 GMT.
