ACCRA, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Black Stars, Ghana's senior national male soccer team, will play the Lone Star of Liberia in an international friendly in Monrovia on Sept. 11, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) said here on Wednesday.

The game will be played just three days after Ghana host Malawi in the first-leg of the final qualifier for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations to celebrate the independence anniversary of Liberia.

The match will help the Black Stars prepare for their return Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Malawi in Blantyre in October, according to Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Ghana is seeking to qualify for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations to be hosted by South Africa.

The Black Stars drew 1-1 with China in an international friendly played at Xi'an's Shaanxi Shangshi Chinghai Stadium on Wednesday.
