Ghana will lock horns with arch rivals Nigeria in an international friendly game in London in August subject to the finalization of an agreement.

The West African rivals who have built one of the fiercest rivalries in world football are due to meet in England on August 10 at a venue yet to be decided three days before the start of the Premiership season.

The Black Stars could play Turkey in London  if the deal to face the Super Eagles falls through.

The contract for the epic clash between the Super Eagles and the Black Stars has been tabled before the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The match has been tentatively fixed for 9 August, a date set aside by Fifa for international friendly matches.

The match is likely to be played at the Queens Park Rangers’ Loftus Road stadium or Selhurst Park, the stadium for Crystal Palace.

Nigeria are desperate for another opportunity to avenge the 4-1 thrashing they suffered at the hands of the Black Stars in London in 2007.

The Super Eagles will be hoping to appease their fans in the UK through the game but with the Black Stars on a high an interesting match will be on display if the two sides agree to play.

Ghana will use the match to prepare for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland in September.
