The CEO of D-Vision Network Dennis Tawiah has confirmed to MYGHANAFOOTBALL.COM that the Black Stars of Ghana will now play their Nigerian counterparts on Tuesday February 6 in London.

The new venue for the match will be the 19,000 capacity Brentford Stadium in West London.
It might be recalled that the same venue hosted the international friendly between the Black Stars and Togo last August.

According to Justin Addo, CEO of Jv2i Consult, organisers of the game, a change of date and venue is the only alternative to ensure the game takes place next month.

The English FA ruled that since England play Spain on 7 February in Manchester we need to look for an alternative date," Addo told BBC Sport on Friday.

"We made strong efforts to still have the game played at Loftus Road, home of Queens Park Rangers but the ground is not free for our new date, hence we have to settle for Brentford.

"The Nigerian FA and the GFA have endorsed this new date we are happy that the match will still take place."

Mr Tawiah who is the GFA's match agent in Europe told Metro Sports that both Nigeria and Ghana will feature all their stars. The Tuesday February 6 Match will kick off at 7:45.
