President of Ghana Football Association Kwasi Nyantakyi says the Black Stars build up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup will be influenced by the opponents Ghana are paired with.

Ghana will get to know her Group opponents for the quadrennial championships on Friday.

There have been calls for high profile International friendly matches for the team before the World Cup in June.

Ghana will be a making a third-straight appearance at the World Cup finals but are yet to confirm their base and friendlies ahead of the 32-team competition.

Mr Nyantakyi says a number of factors will play a role in drawing up plans for the team ahead of the World Cup.

"The outcome of the draw will influence to a very large extent a number of decisions that will be taken in preparations to the World Cup. The first one is the team base camp," Nyantakyi said.

"The second one is the friendlies we will line up. The choice of friendlies will also be influenced by the outcome of the draw. Other plans in terms of monitoring opponents will all be influenced by who we play in the group matches,” he added.

"We will take certain major decisions after the World Cup draw," the legal practitioner added.
