The Ghana Black Stars will play the Selecao of Brazil in an international friendly match in London September 5, 2011, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) says.

The match venue is Fulham’s Cravern Cottage, the FA said in a statement today August 17, 2011.

As at the time of filing this story, the Confederation of Brazil Football (CBF) is yet to make a statement about the friendly.

The last international friendly between both sides was in 2007 in Sweden, where Brazil beat Ghana by a lone goal.

Brazil cancelled its friendly with Egypt scheduled for September 6, due to security reasons and lack of form by the Egyptian side recently.

Ghana’s friendly with Nigeria in Watford on August 9, 2011 was also called-off amid the recent unrest in the UK.
