Ethiopia will now host the Black Stars of Ghana at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg for the matchday 5 game of the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier, GHANAsoccernet.com has reported.

According to the reports, the Ethiopia Football Federation [EFF] and the South Africa Football Association [SAFA] reached an agreement on Thursday to host the Walia Ibex.

Ethiopia were supposed to host Ghana at the Bahir Dar Stadium in November but the stadium has been suspended by the Confederations of African Football [CAF].

It was earlier reported that the game will be played in Nairobi but will now be played in South Africa.

The Black Stars currently sit at the 2nd place on the Group G standings with just one point adrift of leaders South Africa.

Ghana need to win the next two games against Ethiopia and South Africa to ensure they book a place in the play-offs scheduled for March next year.

The Black Stars will now take on Ethiopia in Johannesburg in the penultimate round before hosting the Bafana Bafana in the final Group G game at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
