Next up for Ghana: Zambia

It is now confirmed: Ghana's Black Stars play Zambia on August 12.

Zambia is, of course, now managed by former Ghana physical trainer, Renard Herve.

It'll be at the Matchroom Stadium aka the Brisbane Road which is the grounds of English League One side, Leyton Orient. Ghana are pretty at the top of Group D, five points clear in the qualifiers play against Sudan at home.

Coach Milovan Rajevac will use the game as part of the team's prepsAfrican qualifying for the 2010 World Cup which restarts in September.

Zambia will also use the game to prepare for their impending World Cup qualifier - they are still challenging for a place in South Africa as they remain third in their group after having missed out of all previous attempts to the World Cup.
