It’s official that the Black Stars of Ghana will face the Atlas Lions of Morocco in Cameroon next year.
The delayed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations draw pit the Black Stars who have won the tournament four times against one-time champions Morocco.
Their encounter will be the first match of Group C which also includes Gabon captained by Arsenal star striker Aubameyang and debutants Comoros.
Ghana’s meeting with Morocco will be a repeat of June’s international friendly match played in Rabat.
A goalkeeping howler by Asante Kotoko’s Razak Abalora allowed the Moroccans to win 1-0.
That meeting was the 11th time the two heavyweights on the continent have faced off.
Morocco by virtue of the victory extended their winning record to five with three defeats and four draws.
