Holland will give Black Stars tough test - Ghana FA chief Nyantakyi

Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi believes the Black Stars’ readiness for the 2014 World Cup will be tested by Holland when they meet in an international friendly on May. 

Nyantakyi confirmed on Tuesday that an agreement has been reached for the two finalists to face-off at the Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam on 31 May.

“Holland are ranked ninth in the world and are one of the giants in football. Playing them will help the players and technical team prepare for the tournament in Brazil,” Nyantakyi told Ghana FA.org.

“We want to leave no stone unturned in our preparation for the World Cup and we believe the match against Holland will help us a lot in this direction.”

Ghana face tough opponents in Group G having drawn Germany, USA and Portugal this summer in Brazil.

 

This is the second the two sides will be meeting before a World Cup finals after the Orange thumped the Black Stars 4-1 in Rotterdam before the 2010 tournament.

    This is good news.We can trust the likes of Van Persie,Robben etc to drill our players inside out before the big one.Win or lose I think it will be an intense game.Big ups GFA.Can we also get Mexico or Honduras to prepare for US

  2. keith from germany says:

    Good job nyantakyi.i kno u guys are leaving no stone unturned.
    That would be a good test for the stars.
    I hope u also oraganise a high profile match in march for the stars.
    Teams like costa rica or honduras wil
    Be great to test theirselves since all these teams come from the same region like the USA.
    Sweden,denmark,ireland,serbia n czech republic are all countries that didnt qualify for the mundial but still posses great teams to give ghana a run for her money.

    Keith all your points are spot on…and I want to see several friendlies because our defense and goalkeeping are a major concern…guys on defense are still hurt and D auda has no playing time in South Africa.
