Departing British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin is hopeful of a Ghana-England clash at the 2018 FIFA World Cup final.
The Black Stars have only one point to their credit, and are behind table leaders, Egypt, who have six points from two games in the qualifiers.
The players would welcome the Pharaohs of Egypt, on November 6, 2017. That match would indicate the country that gets to qualify to the tournament.
