Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has confirmed that his side’s AFCON 2019 preparation games will include the Black Stars of Ghana.
The friendly is scheduled to take place in Dubai but a date is yet to be announced.
“We want to play an international friendly before we leave South Africa and we’ve been speaking to Zambia, so they’ve also said they’re willing to play, but we haven’t got official confirmation – Ghana we do have, that’s confirmed,” Baxter said via Soccer Laduma.
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.
Ghana have been handed an opening game at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament against Benin.
The Black Stars have also been paired with defending champions Cameroon and Guinea Bissau in Group F.
