Ghana to play Liberia in international friendly

Ghana will play Liberia in an International friendly at the Accra Sports stadium on Tuesday, September 12, 2023 as part of preparations towards the Africa Cup of Nations Cote D’Ivoire 2023.

The game comes five days after the crucial qualifier against Central African Republic at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Thursday, September 07, 2023.

While Ghana aims to make a record 24th Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cote D’Ivoire, Liberia are all but out of contention for the continental showpiece but would use the game to prepare for future competitions.

Meanwhile, coach Chris Hughton has named Medeama SC striker Jonathan Sowah in his 25-man squad for this month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Central African Republic in Kumasi. The former Danbort FC forward who joined the champions in the second transfer window scored 12 goals to help them win the League title.

Also in the squad are Elisha Owusu and Baba Iddrisu who make a return to the squad after recovering from injuries. Baba Iddrisu missed the FIFA World Cup in Qatar while Elisha Owusu who picked up an injury in February, has yet to play for Ghana since the FIFA World Cup finals in November last year.
