Nigeria, Ghana meet in an international friendly today

Rivals Nigeria and Ghana meet in an international friendly today, scheduled for 3pm GMT kick-off time at the Grand de Stade Marrakech in Morocco.

It is the first time either nation have played since suffering heartbreak at the Africa Cup of Nations, albeit at various stages of the tournament.

The Super Eagles lost in the final to hosts Ivory Coast, while the Black Stars exited at the group stage and duly sacked manager Chris Hughton, who has been replaced on an interim basis by Otto Addo.

Finidi George will oversee matters for Nigeria following the departure of Jose Peseiro. Nigeria have been dealt a blow with Victor Osimhen having been ruled out with an inflammation of an old injury.

Ghana are also without key player Mohammed Kudus and Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey, who will not be available as he looks to build up his fitness with the Gunners.
