BRAZIL continue their World Cup preparations on Friday when they take on African giants Ghana in France.
The Selecao are yet to lose a game since a disappointing 1-0 Copa America final defeat by bitter rivals Argentina in June 2021.
And they’re expected to keep that run intact as they face the Black Stars, who have NEVER beaten them in their entire history.
But the West African country also qualified for the World Cup in Qatar so they will be keen to have the best possible preparation before football’s biggest tournament arrives in November.
However, Brazil coach Tite has called up an incredibly strong squad for these forthcoming friendlies – even without the Arsenal trio of Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli.
When will Brazil vs Ghana kick off?
- Brazil’s eye-popping clash with Ghana is expected to lead to that Friday, 09/23
- The aim is probably to 7.30pm UK time – 20:30 local time.
- Stade Ocedene in Le Havre, France is the designated arena for this friendly and has a capacity of approximately 25,178 fans.
- The Selecao have beaten Ghana in all four competitions, with the last game being a friendly in 2011.
Will Brazil vs Ghana be shown on TV and can I stream it live?
- Unfortunately it will be Brazil against Ghana NOT televised live in the UK.
- However, fans in the United States can head over to beIN Sports, who will be showing coverage of the full action.
Brazil head coach Tite has called up a strong last squad ahead of the World Cup for these forthcoming friendlies, as has Ghana head coach Otto Addo.
