Black Stars to play Brazil in pre-World Cup friendly

The Black Stars of Ghana will play against Brazil in an International friendly next month as part of the build up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 finals.

This follows the decision of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to postpone matches in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The game will take place on Friday, September 23, 2022 at a yet-to-be-named venue in Europe.

The match will give Coach Otto Addo the platform to continue the assessment of his players in the build up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 finals in Doha.

The Black Stars will also face Switzerland in an international friendly before their opening match against Portugal at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

It will be the first time Ghana will face Switzerland in a football match.

The match will take place on Thursday, November 17, 2022 at the Baniyas Club Stadium in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The international friendlies against the Brazil national team and Switzerland will give Ghana a boost going into the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament.

The Black Stars will play Portugal (November 24), South Korea (November 28) and Uruguay (December 2) while Brazil face Serbia (24 November), Switzerland (28 November) and Cameroon (December 2).
