Ghana will face Nigeria in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier play-off under the guidance of a new coach after the Ghana Football Association sacked Milovan Rajevac.
The Serbian has been sacked a week after Ghana crashed out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in embarrassing fashion as the Black Stars were beaten by Comoros.
The GFA is expected to announce Milovan’s successor before the end of the month or early February.
The incoming manager’s first task will be to qualify Ghana for the World Cup in Qatar. It will however not be easy as Black Stars face sworn rivals Super Eagles in the final qualifying round.
The games will be played in late March. Black Stars will host the first leg on March 23 with the return leg in a week’s time in Abuja.
Reports say the new coach will be Ghanain with former assistant Ibrahim Tanko and George Boateng said to be frontrunners.
