Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi told MTNFootball.com “We have concluded talks to play Brazil in an international friendly in London next month”
Mr Nyantakyi also said “The match is part of our plans of getting the best sides to test the Black Stars with the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations approaching.”
The game will be played three days after the Black Stars host Swaziland in Group I of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Accra.
This game is set to be electric and follows on from Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi’s promise to take the Black Stars to another level in his second term in office.
Ghana vs Brazil Previous Meetings:
Ghana have played Brazil twice at the senior level with the five-time world champions winning both matches – unfortunately 🙁.
The two teams met in the second round of the 2006 World Cup, where Brazil beat Ghana 3-0 in Dortmund with goals from Ronaldo, Adriano and Ze Roberto.
Their second meeting came a year later in Sweden when Vagner Love’s first-half goal helped the South Americans to the victory in Stockholm.
