Ghana’s U20 side –The Black Satellites – will engage their South Africa counterparts on Monday in a pre-tournament friendly in Niamey, Niger.
The Black Satellites and the Amajita will use to the warm-up game to wrap up preparations for the start of the tournament this weekend.
”For us, this friendly is about getting our side to adapt to the conditions they will be playing in this tournament. We chose Ghana because they possess similar characteristics in their play with the countries we will be playing against in our group,” Senong told SAFA’s website.
”Ghana are very strong both physically and technically.
”This encounter will help us to assess how far we have come in our preparations, and what are some of the few things we need to address with the players before this tournament kicks off.”
This will be the second friendly to be played by Ghana in Niger after losing 2-0 to the host nation last Wednesday.
The two-time African Champions have been drawn in Group B with Mali, Senegal and Burkina Faso.
