The Black Stars will face Mali on Tuesday March 31 in an international friendly after losing 2-1 to Senegal on Saturday evening.

In a similar result to what happened in the 2015 AFCON group stage match between the two sides, Swiss based Senegalese striker Moussa Konate scored twice before substitute Richmond Yiadom Boakye pulled one back for Ghana.

The Black Stars will however put the defeat behind them and focus on their upcoming friendly against Mali at the Stade Sébastien Charléty in Paris on Tuesday evening.

The friendlies against the two West African sides were arranged to help Ghana coach Avram Grant to invigorate and augment his squad for the upcoming 2017 AFCON qualifiers and other assignments.

The matches are also to afford the technical team an opportunity to closely observe some players who are excelling for their clubs.
