Ghana set to test strength against Brazil in friendly game tonight
On Friday, September 23, 2022, an international friendly between the Black Stars of Ghana and the Samba Boys of Brazil will give fans a chance to see the Black Stars’ impressive football prowess.
The Black Stars of Ghana begin their pre-World Cup training against Brazil at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre, France, two months before the tournament gets underway in Qatar.
The Black Stars would face Brazil for the fifth time at the senior level in this game, with the Samba Boys winning each time since they defeated Ghana 8-2 in 1996.
With players like Tariq Lamptey and Inaki Williams having switched allegiances and Mohammed Salisu being available for selection, the Black Stars, who have never defeated Brazil or drawn a match, would be optimistic going into this match.
Both squads would use this game as a warm-up for the World Cup, especially Brazil, who will play Cameroon in their final World Cup group game while Ghana will take on South American opponents Uruguay.
For this match, the Black Stars have a very talented lineup and can count on Mohammed Kudus, a playmaker for Ajax who has had an outstanding start to the season.
Otto Addo, the team’s coach, would benefit from Partey’s return to Arsenal this week because he has the full team.
Both Mohammed Salisu and Inaki Williams, who appear to have gotten along well with their teammates and to be very at ease in camp, would like to make their debuts.
Brazil is shocked by the omission of Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus, but they still have options like Roberto Firmino of Liverpool, AthMattheus Cunha, and Pedro of Flamengo.
Richarlison, Lucas Paqueta, Neymar, Vinicius Junior, and Raphinha, players who have excelled for their clubs, are just a few of Brazil’s offensive stars.
Richard Ofori (GK); Daniel Amartey; Mohammed Salisu; Tariq Lamptey; Gideon Mensah; Thomas Partey; Baba Iddrisu; Jordan Ayew; Mohammed Kudus; Andre Ayew; Williams Inaki are likely starters for Ghana.
Alisson, Danilo, Marquinhos, Silva, Lodi, Casemiro, Fred, Vinicius Jr., Raphinha, Neymar, and Richarlison are potential starters for Brazil.
