Holland will give Black Stars tough test - Ghana FA chief Nyantakyi
Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi believes the Black Stars’ readiness for the 2014 World Cup will be tested by Holland when they meet in an international friendly on May.
Nyantakyi confirmed on Tuesday that an agreement has been reached for the two finalists to face-off at the Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam on 31 May.
“Holland are ranked ninth in the world and are one of the giants in football. Playing them will help the players and technical team prepare for the tournament in Brazil,” Nyantakyi told Ghana FA.org.
“We want to leave no stone unturned in our preparation for the World Cup and we believe the match against Holland will help us a lot in this direction.”
Ghana face tough opponents in Group G having drawn Germany, USA and Portugal this summer in Brazil.
This is the second the two sides will be meeting before a World Cup finals after the Orange thumped the Black Stars 4-1 in Rotterdam before the 2010 tournament.
