BRAZIL will be continuing their World Cup preparations tonight when they take on African giants Ghana in France.
Selecao are yet to lose a match since their disappointing 1-0 Copa America final defeat to bitter rivals Argentina in June 2021.
And they’ll be expected to keep that run intact as they come up against the Black Stars who have NEVER beaten them in their entire history.
But the West African country have also qualified for the Qatar World Cup so they will be eager to have the best preparation possible before footballs biggest tournament arrives in November.
However, Brazil boss Tite has named a incredibly strong squad for these upcoming friendlies – even without the Arsenal trio of Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli.
What time does Brazil vs Ghana kick off?
- Brazil’s eye-catching encounter with Ghana is expected to happen this Friday, September 23.
- It is scheduled to kick off at 7:30pm UK time – 8:30pm local time.
- Stade Ocedene in Le Havre, France is the designated arena for this friendly and it can host approximately 25,178 supporters.
- Selecao have beaten Ghana in all four of their contests with the last match being an international friendly in 2011.
Is Brazil vs Ghana on TV and can I live stream it?
- Unfortunately, Brazil vs Ghana will NOT be broadcasted live on television in the UK.
- However fans in the United States can head to beIN Sports who are set to be showing coverage of the entire action.
Brazilian boss Tite has named a strong final pre-World Cup squad for these upcoming friendlies and so has the Ghanian head coach Otto Addo.
