Black Stars of Ghana will play five-time title holders Brazil in a friendly one month from now (September 2022).

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) additionally affirmed the consent to play Brazil saying it will allow Coach Otto Addo the opportunity to evaluate his players before making a trip to Qatar.

“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,” the GFA said in a statement.

The match has been made possible thanks to the decision of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to postpone September’s TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers to allow the five African sides going to the World Cup to prepare well.

Ghana have been drawn in Group H at the World Cup to face Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.

Tunisia was drawn in Group D alongside France, Denmark and Australia.
