15 years ago

Ghana and Nigeria would battle for a place at the African Nations Championship when both sides clash in the final round qualifying match.

The local Black Stars would play against Nigeria on November 30 over a two-leg fixture with the winner going through to the finals of the maiden tournament organised by the Confederation of African Football.

The local Black Stars, who remain two games away from reaching the finals of the Africa Nations Championships, a new tournament designed by Caf for only home-based players of its member countries would host the first leg.

Ghana reached the final round stage after completing the double over Niger in April.

Gambian match officials would take charge of next month's final round first leg qualifier between Ghana and Nigeria.

Caf has appointed John Frank Mendy as the match referee for the game. He would be assisted on the Manneh Seedy and Touray Soulayman, with Ghana’s Badiu Ibrahim Adams acting as the fourth official.

Ivory Coast will host the maiden competition from the 22nd February-8th March 2009.
