World’s number one male national football team, Brazil whipped Ghana’s Black Stars in friendly on Friday evening in France.
The “A Seleção’ mesmerized Ghana’s Black Stars in their Pre-World Cup friendly match in Le Havre as both teams prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar later this year.
Brazil started the game on a blistering pace and gave Ghana’s defense a very tough time in the opening minutes of the match with fast attacking play.
Tottenham Hotspur striker, Richardlison was presented with an early opportunity to score but he fluffed his lines in the early stages of the match.
Moments later, Felix Afena Ohene-Gyan was put through on goal by Dennis Odoi but the youngster sent in a tame effort on goal against the run of play.
On the ninth minute mark, Paris St Germain Captain Marquinhos opened the scoring with a free header into the center of the net following a corner kick.
Richarlison finally got his goal with a swift finish on the 28th minute mark to make it 2-0 to the Brazilians.
Eleven minutes later, Richarlison was on a hat-trick as he grabbed his brace from a free-kick well delivered by Neymar six minutes to the end of the match.
After the break, Coach Otto Addo made two changes as Felix Afena Ohene-Gyan and Kamaldeen Sulemana were replaced by Mohammed Salisu and Inaki Williams for their debut.
Ghana grew in confidence and started attacking Brazil with Inaki Williams threatening the goal area of the five-time World Champions.
Ghana switched to 3-4-2-1 in the second half and certainly played better in the second half despite failing to score against the Brazilians who cruised to a comfortable win.
Later in the game, Tariq Lamptey was handed his debut as he came on to replaced Odoi in the second half.
It finished 3-0 to Brazil.
Ghana will play Nicaragua in their second game in Spain on Tuesday evening.
