Following this crucial encounter, the Black Stars will return home to host the Central African Republic at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday, June 10, 2024.

This match is not just about securing points but also about reasserting Ghana’s dominance in the group and building confidence for the matches ahead.

The support of the fans will be instrumental in these upcoming qualifiers.
