The Black Stars of Ghana will engage five time world champions Brazil in an epic international friendly tonight at the Oceane Stadium in Le Havre, France.
This crunchy clash definitely will serve as a preparatory game for both nations as they step up their preparations towards the 2022 FIFA World Cup which is scheduled for November this year in Qatar.
The four time African champions arrived in France last Monday and have been in an intensed training to get themselves well gelled and poised for the crunchy clash.
Coach Otto Addo’s squad has been boosted with the inclusion of newbies Inaki Williams, Stephen Ambroisius, Tariq Lamptey and Mohammed Salisu who have finally joined in a very good shape and form.
On the other hand, the 26 Samba boys invited all touched down at their camping base in France, also by the close of last Monday and started off with some workouts at the gym before hitting the grounds running.
The Selecão have a great squad indepth, a star-studded one undoubtedly led by Neymar and others exciting players like Raphinha, Casemiro, Antony, Thiago Silva, Maquinhos, Real Madrid trio of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao and more.
Both countries have had a feel of the Stade Oceane grass and have finally acclimatized really well to the pitch and everything ahead of tonight’s cracker.
No injury concerns raised in the Black Stars camp so far after four straight days of training with all players looking fit and available for selection.
Coach Otto Addo, skipper Andre Ayew, Bristol City forward Antoine Semenyo and Gideon Mensah have all admitted is a good and tough test but added they are ever ready to take up the challenge
With Brazil, a scare for manager, Adenor Leonardo Bacchi famously known as Tite, after Neymar sustained a knock during their training session on Tuesday, after a collision with Liverpool midfielder Fabinho but was pictured walking off the pitch on his own and is likely to feature tonight.
Astonishingly, Arsenal are doing so well in the English Premier League and are currently sitting at the summit of the log but their Brazilian trio of Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Magalhães and Gabriel Martinelli were all excluded from the squad.
