On Sunday evening, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) announced that Chris Hughton will take over as head coach of the Black Stars, succeeding Otto Addo.

What are his immediate fixtures as the new boss of the four-time African champions and when are they going to be played?

The 64-year-old former Brighton and Hove Albion manager will oversee his first two fixtures as Ghana coach in March 2023 in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Black Stars will take on the Black Antelopes in the round three and four of the 2023 qualifying games late next month.

Ghana vs Angola

The Black Stars, who are top of the qualifying Group E with four points based on goal difference, will host the Black Antelopes, who also have four points, on Monday, March 20, 2023.

The game is expected to be hosted at Cape Coast Sports Stadium. The kick off time is yet to be confirmed.

Angola vs Ghana

The reverse fixture will take place eight days later (March 28) away in Angola, accounting for the round four fixture of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.

The venue and kick off time are yet to be confirmed.
