Angola/Rwanda: Angola and Rwanda to Play Friendly Match in Luanda

Luanda — The national football teams of Angola and Rwanda will play a friendly match at Luanda's "11 de Novembro" stadium, as part of the host's programme of preparation for the African Cup of Nations (CAN2013) in South Africa.

The information was released by the deputy chairman of the Angolan Football Federation (FAF) for international affairs, João Lusevikueno.

The official stressed that the preparation games have been transferred from the Lubango city stadiums as initially planned due to the bad condition of the pitches.

João Lusevikueno added that the friendly match with Ghana will be played on December 15 at Ombaka stadium, central Benguela province, for the same reasons.

The match with Cameroon will be played at Benfica do Lubango's stadium on December 19.

Angola is in group A, together with Morocco, South Africa and Cape Verde. The African Cup of Nations will take place from January 19 to February 10.
