Black Stars

Black Stars will return to action in November after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced the resumption of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Charles Akonnor’s team were scheduled to face Sudan in double-header but the games were called off due to the coronavirus pandemic. The two games will now take place in November.

According to CAF, “the qualifiers will resume on 9-17 November 2020 with the Day 3 and 4 matches whilst the penultimate and ultimate matches take place on 22-30 March 2021.”

The qualifiers started in November last year. Black Stars won their first two games against South Africa and Sao Tome respectively and are top of the table in Group C.

The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which will be hosted by Cameroon has been moved to 2022 due to delays caused by Covid 19.

The Confederation of African Football says it is monitoring the situation closely and working with the relevant authorities with regards to hosting of the matches and will make pronouncements accordingly in the event of developments that will affect playing a match at the designated venue.
