Ghana in talks to play Mexico in friendly

The Black Stars will have either Mexico or an unnamed team as opponents for the final international friendly match of the year, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

With two Fifa  match days available next month, the Ghana FA is keen on utilising both days to ensure the team gets tough preparation for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Mexico are likely to to have taken the first day but the Black Stars could also get a South American opponent given that the game will be played in Mexico City.

Two proposals were discussed at a Black Stars management committee meeting on Wednesday but a final decision is yet to be taken.

"The committee met today to determine our opponents for next month's international friendly date," a top Ghana FA source told GHANAsoccernet.com.

"Mexico and one other team are the options currently being discussed but the final decision was put on hold and will be made in the next meeting which is yet to be communicated.

"I am however sure the meeting will be held by the weekend where the final decision will be taken."

Ghana lost 2-1 to Mexico the last time both teams played each other at the Craven Cottage Stadium in London in March 2008.

The Black Stars will officially round-up its year on November 14 (the final Fifa date).

They will reconvene late December to commence preparations towards the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations which starts on January 21 in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

    Adiyia n Prince Tagoe shud b droped.. Adiyia plays lyk a kid. Cant even shoot. Maxwell Acosty z even far better than him.

Kin(exp) D.F John P, Samuel Inkoom/ Daniel Opare*, john n Jona Mensah, Isaac Vorsah, John Boye, David Addy, Nana Kwesi Asare MDF Agyemang Badu, Derick Boateng, Kevin Boateng, Kwadjo Asamoah, Dede Ayew, Ishmael Yartey, Quincy O. Abeyie, *Christian Atsu STRS Asamoah Gyan, Richmond Yiadom, Jordan Ayew Stand By. Maxwell Acosty, Kingsley Boateng, Emmanuel Frimpong, Afriyie Akwah, Mubarak Wakaso,(Above mentioned players all v de average age of 19 so they v a lot of chances of playin 4 Ghana in near by future if not now) *Inkoom/Opare can be selected cos we dnt need mix shift of ironic footed players playin our full backs. * C. Atsu- God's ravishing gift 2 mada Gh. Multi purpose n skillful player by all standard. Can make defenders go at sixes n sevens. Has got a lot 2 unleash 4 ghanaians 2 see. What are your views panels and your pros and cons. Thank you

    You're right, either him or Jordan Ayew must be playing over Adiyiah/Tagoe.....

    No no my friend, it's not WE, it's YOU. Please speak for yourself and not for us. That's your personal agenda to have them in the team but not everyone shares the same sentiments.
