President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku is enthusiastic about the impending friendlies between his country’s team and the USA Men’s National Team.
The Ghana FA revealed on Tuesday night that a deal has been made for the Black Stars to play their US counterpart on October 17.
Kurt Okraku expressed his certainty that the friendly will be a great opportunity for the Black Stars to prove their mettle.
“We have always been looking for these kinds of opportunities to continue our team-building exercise so playing against the United States of America has come in handy.
‘’We have two more matches to end the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and would need matches of this nature to prepare for future assignments i.e. the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
‘The game presents to us a very good platform to test our strength against one of the best teams in the World,” Kurt Okraku said as quoted on the GFA website.
Meanwhile, Ghana is currently gearing up for the last but one game in the qualifiers for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
The game against Madagascar is scheduled to be played on June 18.
