Ghana To Play England in Accra

Organizers of the international friendly between England and Ghana have been discussing a possible return clash in Accra in the future.

Ghana plays the Three Lions in the first ever meeting between the two nations on March 29 at Wembley, three days after the Black Stars’ crucial 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifier away to Congo in Brazzaville.

However, after Ghana sold out 20,000 tickets for next month’s friendly, the organizers have been encouraged to stage a reverse match within the next two years, having held talks with the Football Association.

FA chairman David Bernstein has held discussions with lawyer Mel Goldberg, who helped organise the March 29 clash.

“On Wednesday I met the chairman of the FA to discuss the match on March 29 and had discussions about playing in Accra,” said Goldberg.

“There is a very good chance this will happen in due course, and not too far away.”

The clash at Wembley would be the first meeting at the senior level though the two nations have met before at youth level, with Ghana claiming a 4-0 win over England at the Fifa Under-20 World Cup two years ago.
