The Black Stars will engage in a friendly encounter with South Africa today with Ghana’s coach Kwesi Appiah likely to unleash his AFCON first team starters in the game.

The four-time continental champions shockingly lost 1-0 against Namibia in their first pre-AFCON friendly match played at the Jebel Ali Centre of Excellence in Dubai last Sunday.

But several top players of the side were not in the starting line up as they were humbled by the Southern African nation.
