Black Stars arranges friendlies against Senegal, Mali in France

By on

SrstrngThe Ghana Football Association (GFA) has arranged two friendlies against Mali and Senegal this month in France to keep the Black Stars squad in shape.

The Black Stars will play Teranga Lions in Le Havre on 28 March and then take on the Malians three days later in Paris.

The two matches will help Ghana coach Avram Grant to invigorate his squad despite their excellent showing at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea last month.

“We are looking forward to augmenting our squad for future tournaments,” Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi told

“Coach Avram Grant wants to use the matches in France to observe some players who are excelling for their clubs while keeping the squad in shape for our future assignments.

“Senegal and Mali are one of the top national teams in Africa and playing against them will give us the strong test we need ahead of the qualifiers for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.”

It would be the Black Stars’ first match since they finished second at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars are expected to start camping in France on Monday before they play the two matches.
