South Africa have announced they will be playing Ghana in an international friendly as part of preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.
The friendly is scheduled to take place in Dubai but a date is yet to be announced. The Black Stars were initially booked to play their West African counterparts Nigeria but the warm up game was called off a few days ago.
According to Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter, there will be two separate squads – one to prepare for COSAFA and the other for AFCON – and he said both would be competitive.
The AFCON squad will play one international friendly in South Africa before leaving for a comprehensive and longer camp in Dubai where some of the players from COSAFA will join the AFCON team.
