Ghana vs Togo on 8th February

By Peterking Quaye – The first test for Ghana’s new coach and proof that the heavy sums of money dished out for him is worth it comes off this next week with a friendly match with Adebayor’s Togo . Goran Stevanovic’s squad to face Togo in an international friendly next week Tuesday has been announced.

A 19-man squad would represent the Black Stars in the game in Antwerp, Belgium on 8 February as Ghana plays the Hawks in their first fixture of the New Year which would also be Stevanovic’s debut as head coach.

Sulley Muntari and Derek Boateng both return to the squad since the end of the 2010 World Cup while Berekum Chelsea goalkeeper Ernest Sowah gets a debut call up.
