Ghana’s normalization committee have reached agreement with the Namibia Football Association to use the country’s Black Stars B team for next month’s Namibia Annual Presidential Cup game.
The Southern Africans have officially written to Dr. Kofi Amoah, President of the normalization committee team for the match which is expected to take place in the Namibian capital of Windhoek on 24th November, 2018.
The upcoming friendly will be sponsored by the country’s brewing company, as well as mobile telecommunications firm, MTC. Other sponsors will include Namibia Wildlife Resorts, Air Namibia and Huawei.
Though the Namibain FA orginally wrote to the normalization committee to host Kwasi Appiah’s side, SportsworldGhana.com has gathered that the Black Stars B would rather be used for the game since the said date won’t be a FIFA free day.
The game is being played to honour Namibia President Hage Geingob.
The Black Stars B have been scattered for some time now following the halt of the Ghana Premier League after the Anas Aremeyaw Number#12 investigative piece.
Coach Maxwell Konadu is however expected to assemble his side and prepare for the game come next month.
The Black Stars B team in September 2017 won the WAFU Cup of Nations tournament hosted in Ghana.
Meanwhile, Namibia’s national team will be hoping to defend the cup they won last year against rivals Zimbabwe.
