Bafana to Play Ghana Next Month 9/15/2008

South Africa will play Ghana on October 15 in an international friendly, most likely at the Ohene Djan Stadium in Accra.

With venues for Ghana games involving the Black Stars now a major issue among the country''s towns and cities, the venue is the only issue in slight doubt.

The GFA Communications Manager Randy Abbey has confirmed the GFA has received a request from the South African Football Association (Safa) for the game and says Ghana will take it up because they reckon it will be a good exercise.

That game will come three days after the Black Stars'' final World Cup\Afcon qualifier against Lesotho, while Bafana Bafana, out of the running for a place at the 2010 Africa Nations Cup in Angola, will pass through Accra after their final qualifier against Equatorial Guinea.

The game, scheduled on a Fifa international date a month from today, could give Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac a priceless opportunity to look more closely at his players in a competitive game while Brazilian Joel Santana will be hoping it plays a role in rebuilding not just the South African side, but their confidence for the 2010 World Cup.

Ghana and South Africa have a thriving rivalry at international level dating back to the 1996 Nations Cup semi-final when Bafana Bafana beat the Black Stars 3-0.

Bafana beat Ghana on home soil in the 2000 Nations Cup but the Black Stars have had the edge in the last three meetings, drawing at Mali 2002 before back-to-back wins over Bafana helped Ghana reach the World Cup for the first time in 2006.
