Ghanaian Premier League giants Hearts of Oak will play Ghana male U20 side, Black Satellites, in a friendly game at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday.
The Phobians were initially due to take on fellow premier league side Tema Youth but last-minute disagreements led to the dropping of the fixture.
Hearts coach David Duncan will use the game to measure his side’s strength ahead of the resumption of the Ghanaian Premier League in a fortnight.
New signings Emmanuel Osei, Obed Ansah, James Bissue and others are expected to be put to full test.
While Hearts will be using the game as part of preparations for their second round opener against King Faisal, coach Sellas Tetteh will have the chance to see how his Black Satellites will fare against a more formidable opposition.
Hearts have scored 11 goals and conceded just once in two friendly games against lower-tier sides.
