Neighbours Nigeria are reportedly strongly lobbying for a date with coach Avram Grant’s men in London while last month, Chile claimed reaching an agreement with Ghana through its national team assistant coach Sergio Santin. Santin leaked the yet to be made official plan in an interview with Uruguay’s Radio Sport 890 where he said, “we have panned two games before the [October/November 2018 World Cup] qualifiers – with USA and Ghana as well.” Peru plan to play the United States Men’s National Team in Washington on September 4 before moving to New York where they claim to play Ghana on September 8.
