The match will be played in Abu Dhabi on 10 January.

The Black Stars will take on Tunisia three days later at the same venue after an agreement was reached to play the Carthage Eagles.

“We have concluded an agreement to play for another high-profile friendly as part of our preparations for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations,” GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi said in a press statement.

“We will play Egypt in Abu Dhabi on 10 January to give the Black Stars the tough test they need ahead of the Nations Cup.

“Egypt are one of Africa’s giants in football and playing them will help the players and technical team prepare for the tournament.

“This is the second match we have confirmed ahead of the Nations Cup after we agreed to play Tunisia.

“We want to leave no stone unturned in our preparation the matches against Tunisia and Egypt will help the Black Stars a lot.”
