thumbnail Hello,

The football governing body of the west African country has set a new date of October 15 for the first-leg tie against the Pharaohs in Kumasi

The Ghana FA has changed the date for next month's World Cup play-off against Egypt in Kumasi to October 15.

The first-leg of the clash was originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, 13th October, 2013, but a statement from the football governing body of the west African country said, “the decision is meant to give Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah more training time with the team before the match in Kumasi.”

It added: “It also falls in line with FIFA's decision of playing the first-leg of the play-off between 11 and 15 October.”

The tie will still be held at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi 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.
