The Palancas Negras of Angola will pitch their strength against their Guinean counterparts, Syli Nationale in an international friendly on June 13 in Lisbon, Portugal .
The clash is part of preparations for next year’s Africa Cup of Nation hosts for the continental show piece event whilst the Syli’s will use the game to fine-tune for their Group “E” 2010 World Cup/Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Malawi seven days later in Conakry.
Augusto Silva, General Secretary of Angola Football Federation (FAF) in a statement on the federation’s website said the game will be the first for new coach, Jose Manuel.
Manuel is currently in Angola for a CAF Confederation Cup 1/8th round second leg clash between Al-Ahly and Santos FC, which will be his last match in charge of the six-times Africa champions.
The team is expected to begin camping for the Guinea test on June 1.
