    Default Ghana coming to Wembley- Confirmed by the FA

    England will play host to Ghana in the first ever meeting between the two nations in March.

    Three days after the first Euro 2012 qualifier of the year, away to Wales, Fabio Capello's side will face the Black Stars at Wembley.

    Ghana achieved the highest place of all African teams at the World Cup in South Africa last year, and were a penalty shoot out away from the semi-finals.

    There will be a number of familiar faces on show with the likes of Michael Essien, John Pantsil, Asamoah Gyan, Richard Kingston and John Mensah all currently plying their trade in the Premier League.

    There have been a handful of meetings at youth level, Ghana beat England convincingly 4-0 at the FIFA U20s World Cup two years ago, while England U18s emerged the victors in 2007 in a friendly at the Priestfield Stadium. The meeting on Tuesday 29 March will however be the first meeting at Senior level.

    It has also been confirmed that England will not face Thailand in June. Although an informal agreement had been reached for a friendly match following the qualifier with Switzerland, no formal details in terms of match date or venue had ever been established and following discussions by The FA Board it was decided not to go ahead with the fixture.

    Tickets for Ghana at Wembley will go on sale to englandfans members on Friday 28 January, and to the general public on Tuesday 1 February.
