Ghana Likely To Pull Plug On Norway friendly
The Ghana Football Association says it will be forced to pull out of next month's intended friendly international against Norway in Oslo if the match organizers fail to pay them their outstanding commission. The Football Association is yet to receive the remaining US$ 150,000 from the Ghana-Australia friendly in Sydney in March. The Ghana Football Association received US$ 50,000 due to the absence of two players;Micheal Essien and Sulley Muntari from the Australia friendly. "We are at loggerheads for now because they can't deny us that amount simply because Muntari and Essien failed to turn up for the match," a source told Ghanasoccernet.com "Muntari was pardoned to miss the match after complaining of tiredness after playing in Portsmouth's FA Cup final in England and Essien was excused due to Chelsea's UEFA Champions League finals appearance." The FA wants to settle their differences before agreeing a deal to play on 20 August. But the FA assures that it will make alternate arrangements to the keep the Black Stars busy before the combined 2010 Nations Cup/World Cup qualifiers resume in September. Ghana will play the Greens of Libya on 6 September in Tripoli.
