Ghana will face Brazil in a friendly match

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed that the Black Stars will play a friendly match against five-time World Cup champions Brazil.

The GFA made the announcement on Friday in a statement posted on its website.

Football governing body Ghana and their Brazilian counterparts have reached an agreement for the friendly match following the Confederation of African Football’s decision to postpone the September matches of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The game will take place on Friday, September 23, 2022, at an as-yet-unnamed location in Europe.

The game will give coach Otto Addo the chance to continue the evaluation of his players in the build-up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.

The Black Stars will face Portugal (November 24), South Korea (November 28) and Uruguay (December 2) in Group H.

Brazil and Ghana have met four times and the South Americans have won all four encounters.

Their very first encounter was in a friendly in 1996 with Brazilian players marching past like Rivaldo, Dida, Aldair, Juninho triumphing 8-2.

At the time, in the formation of the Black Stars, there were Tony Yeboah, Richard Kingston, Samuel Ossei Kuffour, Emmanuel Duah, Daniel Addo and Nii Lamptey.

Their last meeting was also a friendly match in 2011 which Brazil won 1-0.
