On 01-07-1963, Ghana-Italy Serie C 5-2. This friendly was played in Accra. I've found also the goalscorers:
14' Salisu (Ghana), 59' Salisu (Ghana), 60' Mfum (Ghana), 62' Acquah (Ghana), 68' Riva - penalty - (Italy Serie C), ??? Aggrey Fynn (Ghana), ??? Pereni (Italy Serie C).

Yes, you're right. According to the Almanacco Illustrato del Calcio and to the Dizionario Biografico Enciclopedico di un Secolo del Calcio Italiano, the date was 01-07-1960, but I've found this interesting article from L'Unità:
http://archiviostorico.unita.it/cgi-bin ... a%20italia
This article was written in Accra on 29-06-1963 and it actually reports that: "Tomorrow the Italian team will play its last friendly here in Ghana", so the day was surely 30-06-1963.

I've read a curious issue: some sources declare that in 1960 (or 1961) Ghana faced Real Madrid in Accra and obtained a great 3-3. Edward Acquah was among the goalscorers.

I haven't encountered this match. I know that RCD Espanyol went to Nigeria in late 1961, maybe they went to Ghana too?

I can confirm that Espanyol was defeated by the Nigerian National team, but with regard to Ghana-Real Madrid 3-3, I took a look at El Mundo Deportivo from that period, but I couldn't find anything... So was it just a metropolitan legend?

What is the meaning of Ghana 'B' -Ivory Coast 'B'? are those not a-matches according to FIFA ?

Ghana CHAN v Ivory Coast CHAN. FIFA counts all CHAN matches as A matches now (unless the FAs don't agree). I don't count them as A matches. I wouldn't be surprised if they are removed later. They are only on FIFA's site because I told them about the matches a few days before they played, so there is a chance they were not properly registered with CAF.

Odd that they now view CAF's administration and record-keeping as a crucial factor, given how incompetent it has been in the past.

Also odd that they create an unnecessary extra layer of administration when match reports/authorisation ultimately have to go to/come from FIFA. Surely one full-time member of staff would be enough to deal with authorisation and recording of international match results?

Yes but that goes against the principle of bureaucracy.

I go on with the "celebrations" of the most important moments in the history of the various national teams through my personal archive. Guerin Sportivo issue 13 from March/April 1982 dedicates an interesting coverage about the 1982 Africa Cup of Nations. That was Ghana's fourth and final triumph in the continental tournament.


Ghana's national team





Ghana 0-0 Cameroon





Ghana 1-0 Tunisia




Abedi Ayew "Pelé"





Ghana's list of 40 players given to CAF. Although Adolf Armah and Abdul Razak were initially registered, they didn't participate in the tournament as they remained with their clubs in the United Arab Emirates.
