The Black Stars of Ghana will play Mauritania in an International friendly on March 26 in Accra as part of preparations for AFCON 2019. 

Ghana will host the Lions of Chiguetti three days after facing Kenya in the final AFCON 2019 qualifier in Accra.

Both Ghana and Mauritania have already qualified for the Nations Cup in Egypt but Mauritania are travelling to Burkina Faso for their final AFCON qualifier on March 22.

For Mauritania, Egypt 2019 will be their first ever Nations Cup appearance.

Twenty four players were invited to Ghana’s camp for the March international break – where they get to play both Kenya and Mauritania. Both games will afford Kwasi Appiah the opportunity to assess all invited players.

Mauritania head coach, Corentin Martins has also named a strong 24-man squad for the double-header.

The Frenchman has handed maiden call-ups to Ibrahima Coulibaly and Souleymane Anne, who ply their trades with Grenoble Foot 38 and FC Aurillac Arpajon respectively.
