The Ghana Football Association has cancelled next month’s international friendly against the Harambee Stars of Kenya.
The Black Stars, who are scheduled to take on Sudan in a June 7 World Cup qualifier-had planned to use the friendly match against Kenya as part of their preparations.
But the change in date of the qualifier has altered the plans of Ghana coach Kwasi Appiah.
"The proposed friendly between our team and Ghana has been called off," said John Karioko, spokesperson of the Kenyan Football Federation.
"According to the Ghana FA, their coach says he will not be able to have his players in camp early enough as he had arranged.
"The world cup between Ghana and Sudan has been pushed forward to a later date so the coach says he will not be to assemble the players before the game.''
The Black Stars will now regroup on May 30 before flying over to Nairobi for the training tour before the double-header World Cup qualifier against Sudan and June.
