The Black Stars of Ghana will host the Elephants of La Cote D'Ivoire this afternoon in a crunchy international friendly at the Cape Coast Stadium.

 

The last time both countries met in a competitive fixture was when the Elephants defeated the Black Stars 8-7 via penalty shootouts to win the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations which was staged in Equatorial Guinea.

 
Ghana fell to a narrow and painful 1-0 defeat against Morocco last Tuesday at the Prince Moulaye Abdellah Stadium, a game that was decided by Real Valladolid centre-back Jawad El Yamiq's 67th minute header.
 
On the other hand, goals from Ahmad Diallo and Ibrahim Sangare propelled the Ivorians to edge out the Stallions of Burkina Faso by 2-1 at the Gigiantic Felix Houphouët-Boigny Stadium in Abidjan last Tuesday.
 
Similarly, both teams have all qualified for the 2021 AFCON which will be staged early next year and engage each other this time to test themselves for the World Cup qualifiers and the upcoming continental Championship.
