Black Stars of Ghana are set to face Mauritania in an international friendly on March 26 in Accra as part of their preparations for upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Egypt.

Ghana will welcome the Lions of Chiguetti to the Accra Sports Stadium just three days after facing Kenya in the final qualifier at the same venue.

Both countries have already qualified for the Nations Cup in June later this year.

Mauritania will be travelling to Burkina Faso for their final 2019 Africa Nations Cup qualifier on March 22 ahead of their debut appearance at the tournament.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah announced his 24-man squad including five debutants for the two matches on Monday as he set sights on breaking the country's trophy drought by winning the Afcon title.
