Ghana to play London friendly against Jamaica

ACCRA, Oct 1 (Reuters) - African Nations Cup finals hosts Ghana are to play a friendly against Jamaica in London later this month, the Ghana Football Association announced on Monday.

It is the second meeting between the two countries in Britain in the last two years. They met at Leicester before the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany, where Ghana reached the second round.

They will meet again at Leyton Orient's ground on Oct. 14 as Ghana continue their preparations for the finals which start next January.

Ghana are to host a four-nation tournament in November to test facilities ahead of the finals, which start on Jan. 20.

Renovated venues in Accra and Kumasi will be used for the tournament, to which Benin, Guinea and the United Arab Emirates have been invited to participate from Nov. 17-21.

Like Trini haven't got Kelvin Jack, Clayton Ince, Tony Warner, Dennis Lawrence, Brent Sancho, Ian Cox, Marvin Andrews, Chris Birchall, Stern John, Kenwyne Jones, Dwight Yorke, Jason Scotland, Russell Latapy etc.

Surely, TTFF could organise an exibition match in England?

Months and lack of practice won't see the Reggae Boyz winning this match. But they won't lose by a large margin either.
And being in the football wildnerless for so long and Jamaica's FIFA ranking being at #96 the big teams know that the ranking is not a true reflection of Jamaica's football in the order of things.
Maybe that's one of the reasons why the big teams are still willing to play the Reggae Boyz. ;D ;D ;D

Jamaica always better teams to play than Trini. I think many teams will choose to play Jamaica just because of their name. This London match will be big, considering the amount of Jamaicans and Ghanains in London. Trini needs to get some quality matches. Playing against EL Salvador and Honduras, aint gonna do Sh1t for Trini. Especially when teams like Jamaica and Canada are getting solid teams to play against.

Stars Vs Jamaica Friendly Match Cancelled
 
The Black Stars of Ghana had planned to play an international friendly match against Jamaica on 14 October but those plans have now been cancelled.
 

 
 The match was to be played on the home ground on English club, Leyton Orient but the game was called off.

Match organizers reported they were unable to secure a ground to host the game after Leyton Orient withdrew their permission based on security reasons.

There had been speculations that the game will instead be played in Accra, Ghana, but according to latest reports, that is also unlikely to happen.

Ghana’s French coach, Claude Le Roy, told media that the national team will now focus on a four-nation tournament, which has been slated for November.

“There’s no plan. The plan was to play against Jamaica. We’ve tried to find teams to play but its not been possible,” he said.

“Now, our plan is the November 17-21 date, that’s with the four-nation tournament and the Olympic game against Nigeria.

“The priority for the next game is the Olympic team.”

Ghana will use the friendly matches as warm-up for the 2008 African Nations Cup which will be hosted on home soil.

Promoters apologise for cancellation of Boyz friendly
Jamaica Observer


Thursday, October 11, 2007
 
British-based GB Sports has apologised to the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) for the cancellation of the proposed friendly match between the Reggae Boyz and Ghana's Black Stars.

In a letter yesterday to JFF president Crenston Boxhill, Mark Gibbon of the events promotion company said, "I apologise for the inconvenience that this would have caused."

The game, which was orginally scheduled for Leyton Orient's Brisbane Road ground on Sunday, was called off after GB Sports failed to secure an alternative venue when the London-based club decided against hosting the match, citing "security concerns".

It was said the London Metropolitan Police refused to police the game as it needed a 35-day notice to arrange for security for this particular game against the normal 28 days notice served prior to matches.

Matches in the past involving African teams have often been tainted with rowdy crowd behaviour and instances of match invasions, so the police did not get sufficient notice to arrange "special security" for the event.
Recognising that an alternative venue in London would not be forthcoming, the Ghana Football Association (GFA), desperate for a warm-up match before the start of the four-nation tournament they will host next month, attempted to shift the game to Accra on Wednesday.
At a press briefing yesterday in the Ghana capital, the GFA officially announced that the game would not take place there either.
Gibbon, in his letter to Boxhill, said, "for internal reasons we have now been notified that it is not possible" for the match to be played in the west African country.

He further noted that "there were too many external influences that prevented this match from taking place".
Ghana will enter the next month's tourney without a practice game and coach Claude Le Roy expressed disappointment that the game against Jamaica fell through.

"There's no plan (to play anyone else). The plan was to play against Jamaica. We've tried to find teams to play, but it has not been possible," he said on the GFA's official website ghanafa.com.

And this latest failure has added to the mounting problems facing the Boxhill administration which will relinquish leadership to former president, Captain Horace Burrell, the sole nominee for the post of president, at the voting congress on November 4.

In August, shortly after Boxhill announced that he would not be seeking re-election, an embarrassing bungling by the administration resulted in the Under-15 team failing to travel to Trinidad & Tobago to contest the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) tournament, which resulted in a fine being levied against Jamaica by the regional body, the CFU.

As a result of the abandonment of the game, the Boyz will remain idle for another two days (October 14 and 17), dates reserved by FIFA for nations to play competitive and/or friendly games.

The Boyz were also inactive on the last FIFA dates, September 8 and 12, and have not played a game since the team, comprising local-based players, completed a four-nation your of Asia in late June to early July.

In a match between Jamaica and Ghana last year, the Boyz were routed 1-4 at Walkers Stadium in Leicester, England. Ghana first played the Boyz at the Accra Sports Stadium in 1999 where they won 2-1.
