Ghana and England FAs are in talks in a bid to secure a international friendly between the two countries.
England will line up against world cup quarter finalist Ghana in march 2011 if the two FAs reach an agreement according to reports. Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi has confirmed that discussions are underway to put a date in place, but admits no date has been agreed to yet.
“Yes, it true we are talking with England to play their national team,” said Nyantakyi in a statement.
“We haven’t finished the details yet but hopefully we are looking to engage them in March.
“It is a real possibility, but let us wait and see how it goes.”
England has never lost to an African side before. The clash with Ghana, a team made up of world class players such as Sunderland’s Asamoah Gyan, Chelsea’s Michael Essien, and Milan’s Kevin Prince Boateng would put England at risk of suffering its first defeat in the hands of an African country.
The encounter would be the first between four time African champions Ghana and one time world champ England
