Ghana FA confirms friendly with Mexico

The Ghana Football Association has confirmed the Black Stars international friendly against Mexico on 28 June.
The match will be played at Houston’s NRG Stadium in Texas, USA.
A statement on the Ghana FA’s website read: ”The Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF), Soccer United Marketing (SUM), Lone Star Sports & Entertainment and the Houston Dynamo today announced that Mexico will play Ghana on Wednesday, June 28 (7:30 p.m. CT), at Houston’s NRG Stadium, presented by AT&T.

”The game takes place just days prior to Mexico’s participation in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the official national team competition in the region.

Mexico has defeated Ghana in two all-time meetings (2006 and 2008).

The 2006 game, played at FC Dallas’ Toyota Stadium, saw Guillermo Franco score the game’s only goal with a 75th minute header.

Legend Pável Pardo was the hero of the 2008 game, scoring the winning goal – a penalty – in the 85th minute to give Mexico a 2-1 win, in a match played in England.
