The Black Stars will end their three-month inactivity when they line up for their first international friendly since March 2007 with a game against Senegal on August 21.

The Ghana Football Association has confirmed that the international fixture with the Teranga Lions would come off in London at the New Den, the home ground of English League side Millwall

Ghana’s meet with the Senegalese would be the second time both West African sides are meeting in London after drawing goalless in a similar exercise last year prior to the Black Stars’ debut at the World Cup.

The Black Stars were given respite after March’s double friendly fixture with Austria and Brazil.

For Ghana, the August 21 date forms part of Claude Le Roy’s build-up to the African Cup of Nations tournament which the country would be hosting next January.

Ghana, who are yet to record a win since the friendly match against Nigeria which was also played in London, this time at Brentford's Griffin Park.

The Black Stars thumped the Super Eagles 4-1 but failed to produce wins in the two subsequent matches, drawing with Austria and losing 1-0 to Brazil.
