Stars, Eagles Ready For Showdown

Ghana's Black Stars were expected to reach full complement by last night in readiness for tomorrow's friendly against Tunisia at the Ohene Djan Stadium.

The Serbian trainer, Milovan Rajevac, has invited a blend of 21 old and new players for tomorrow's exercise which forms part of the build-up of both teams towards the joint Africa Cup/World Cup qualifiers which resume next March.

It will be the Stars's first friendly at home in many years, while offering Accra fans an opportunity to see the return of Skipper Stephen Appiah to the side he captained at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

The Tunisians who are coached by Portuguese tactician, Humberto Coelho, are substitutes for the rather high profile Paraguay, a side that now attracts attention in South America for their conquering form against respected Brazil and Argentina.

With Israel-based Sam Yeboah, Egypt-based Samuel Kyere and South Africa-based Jonathan Mensah earning maiden call-ups, Stars coach Milovan Rajevac is privileged to have a team never short of quality and youthfulness.

Kick-off is at 5 p.m. and advance tickets are now on sale at the Ohene Djan Stadium.
