Ghana Announce New Date For Egypt Play-off First Leg

Ghana Football Association (GFA) has changed the date for next month's World Cup playoff against Egypt in Kumasi. The first-leg of the clash had been scheduled to be played on Sunday, 13th October, 2013. However, the GFA has decided to change the match to Tuesday 15th October, 2013. The decision is meant to give Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah more training time with the team before the match in Kumasi. It also falls in line with FIFA's decision of playing the first-leg of the playoff between 11 and 15 October. The Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi remains the venue for the match. Kick off will be at 16:00GMT. The second leg is planned for between 15 and 19 November of this year. Two-leg ties will be played between both nations with the aggregate winner going to the finals in Brazil next year.
