Black Stars will play Montenegro in a friendly in March

The Ghana Football Association has confirmed that it has finally sealed the deal to play Montenegro in an international friendly in March.

This comes one week after Ghana's leading football news website exclusively reported that the Black Stars have lined up a friendly against the Brave Falcons.

The GFA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie then refused to confirm or deny that the match was in the offing insisting that journalists must wait for the official announcement.

Now the GFA has issued a statement revealing that they have reached a deal to play the match against Montenegro in in Podgorica.

According to the Ghana FA, 'the Black Stars will play the Brave Falcons in the international friendly game on 5 March'.

The match against Montenegro forms part of the Black Stars preparation for the World Cup in June.

The game will be played at the Stadium Pod Goricum in Podgorica.

The match will kick-off at 1800 local time.

The Ghana-Montenegro friendly is expected to be the last exercise for head coach Kwasi Appiah before he names his final squad for the Brazil FIFA World Cup in June.

Ghana is drawn in Group D of the World Cup alongside the United States, Portugal, and Germany.

    So it was true after-all that we are playing this low profile friendly, when the likes of Ivory coast and Nigeria are playing big names. So cant we play Belgium, Italy, Chile or Columbia instead? GFA for you!!

    @sharky, relax man. Montenegro is a decent side. They are 52 in the world and they led their sections in World Cup qualifying for some time. Besides they are not the only team we're playing. We are scheduled to play Netherlands in May and there are talks about possibly playing Colombia, Germany, and Argentina. Relax GFA is doing their best.

    thank you kwame. people like sharky are complete IDIOTS. is Ghana the only team looking to play top teams? NO. so calm your stupid face. montenegro led their qualifying group until the last few games when they folded. because you've never heard the name "Montenegro" before doesn't sanction your ignorance.

    Montenegro which formerly belonged to serbia n yugoslavia are a Great side with quiet some good players accros europe. Their best player is manchester city 25 million £ buy jovetic who has proved his mark in the italian serie. As it has already being said,montenegro gave englang,ukraine and poland a good run for their money before losing the last two games against england n ukraine. Besides that they have good players in italy. Underrate them at your own peril. Believe it or not thats a great match for the stars. Anybody who follows european football,when im talking of euro football,i dont not only mean the EPL but almost all the euro leagues in general,one will recognise that montenegro has good players accross europe. Kudos to GFA for settings things straight.afterwards ghana meet holland in the Rotterdam de kuip stadium. Love to all forumites
