The Ghana Football Association says it will outline a comprehensive training program for the Black Stars next week as Ghana prepares for next month's 2006 World cup qualifying match against Congo DR.

A proposed friendly match with Togo has been called off following a disagreement over the venue for the tie.

Ghana had hoped to use the game as a ceremonial match for her 48th Independence anniversary.

But Togo had also insisted on playing at home.

GFA Vice Chairman, Kwesi Nyantakyi, told Joy Sports that the Black Stars could be playing Nigeria instead.

'We have received a proposal from the Nigeria Football Association for a friendly match and we intend to make concrete plans for the game on either Monday or Tuesday'

Meanwhile Black Stars coach, Ratomir Dujkovic is expected in the country this weekend after his European tour.

Dujkovic stayed on in Europe after the Stars played Dutch club side Ajax Amsterdam earlier this month.
