Black Stars to clash with Uganda in a friendly on March 26 after AFCON 2023 disaster

Ghana’s national football team, the Black Stars, is set to resume action on March 26, 2024, as they gear up for an international friendly clash against Uganda.

The announcement of this friendly encounter came from the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) via their official social media channels on Friday.


This fixture arrives on the heels of the Black Stars’ disappointing performance in the recent AFCON tournament held in Cote d’Ivoire, where they fell short of expectations by failing to advance past the group stage.

Despite managing draws against Egypt and Mozambique and suffering a defeat to Cape Verde, Ghana’s campaign ended in dismay.

Currently without a head coach following the dismissal of Chris Hughton after the AFCON disappointment, there’s speculation swirling around the selection of a new coaching staff.

Reports suggest a shortlist of candidates has been presented to the Ministry of Youth and Sports, with Otto Addo, former Ghana coach and Dortmund trainer, emerging as a top contender for the vacant head coach role.

As preparations ramp up for the upcoming friendly against Uganda, all eyes are on the Ghana Football Association (GFA), which is expected to unveil a new technical team in the coming days.

The match against Uganda provides a pivotal opportunity for the Black Stars to regroup, rebuild, and redeem themselves following their AFCON setback.

They aim to rejuvenate their footballing journey and regain the trust and support of their fans.
