Ghana books test with Tunisia

Ghana have lined up an international friendly match against Tunisia in preparation for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars will take on the Carthage Eagles in the United Arab Emirates in January, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced. The match will be played in Abu Dhabi on 13 January.

"As part of our preparations for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations we have agreed to play Tunisia in a friendly in January," GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi said in a press statement.

"The match will be played in Abu Dhabi where Ghana will be camping for the tournament.

"We want to leave no stone unturned in our preparation so a match against one of the top sides in Africa like Tunisia will give the Black Stars the needed test for the Nations Cup."

Ghana will be camping in Abu Dhabi in preparation for the Africa Cup of Nations to be held in South Africa from 19 January. The Black Stars are drawn in Group B along with Mali, Niger and DR Congo and they will be based at Port Elizabeth.
