Ghana U20 call off friendly over pitch unavailability
Ghana’s U20 team were unable to play their scheduled friendly game against Future Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday due to the unavailability of the pitch.
The stadium administration had apparently rented out the pitch for a non-sporting event despite prior notification from the Ghana FA for the use of the facility for the trial match.
The Black Satellites arrived at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday morning only to realize they couldn’t use the pitch as a giant platform was being mounted around the Conference Center end post.
GHANAsoccernet.com checks revealed the staged was being mounted to host a musical show at the weekend.
The stadium authorities however did not inform the Ghana FA accordingly, leading to the clash.
Coach Sellas Tetteh therefore needed to improvise after the match was called off my taking his team through a routine training session.
The Black Stars are gearing towards their final preparation phase ahead of the first leg of their ultimate qualifier for the African Youth Championships against Gabon on August 17.
