Ghana Settles On Tunisia

THE HULLABALOO about the senior national team, the Black Stars' next opponent has now been settled, following Ghana's decision to play Tunisia in an international friendly.

The four-time African Champions have decided to lock horns with the North African giants on November 19, 2008 which has been sanctioned on the FIFA calendar for international friendlies among national teams on the globe.

A source who hinted this to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS named the Ohene Djan Stadium in Accra as the likely venue for the duel.

Though it would be costly to host the Tunisians, the source said the government wants to use the match to promote peace in the country, especially as the impending polls draw nearer.

He said the FAs of the two associations have almost come to an agreement to test their might against each other on the said date.

On why Ghana dropped Paraguay which was on its radar for the friendly game, the source said the GFA could not meet the huge financial demands needed to host the South Americans.
