Ghana is set to face Mali and Equatorial Guinea in two separate friendly games in Antalya, Turkey, in October.

This was confirmed by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) in a statement on its website.

“The Black Stars will play Mali on Friday, October 9, before taking on Equatorial Guinea on Monday, October 12, 2020,” the GFA said in the statement.

The Football Association clearly indicated that both games will be played behind closed doors and under strict COVID-19 protocols.

According to the GFA, the two games will help Black Stars head coach, C.K Akonnor, to prepare his side for November’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan.

“The two friendlies will come in handy for C.K Akonnor who is yet to play his first game since he was appointed new Coach of the Black Stars in February this year.”

Ghana top Group F with 6 points following victories against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in November 2019.
