Montenegro’s first choice goalkeeper Vukasin Poleksic fears his depleted side will be thrashed by Ghana in the international friendly.

The Brave Falcons would be without Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic and captain Mirko Vucinic who plays for Italian champions Juventus.

Poleksic, 31, believes the Black Stars are favourites to win Wednesday’s exhibition match to be played in Podgorica.

“The game against Ghana is going to be a challenging one because they are a top team and come here complete whiles we are depleted,” Poleksic said.

“They were in the quarter finals of the previous world cup and failed to make the last four just by virtue of less luck.

“We would be less strong by virtue of injury but we need our supporters to play a part, we need them to play the extra man for us.

“Even dough it’s just a preparatory game the score line will help us in the next game so it’s very important we give a good account of our self.

“Defeat will be a hard fall so we should try as much as possible to put that thought out of mind.”

Montenegro have been Group alongside Russia, Liechtenstein, Austria, Moldova and Sweden for the 2016 European qualifiers.

    Ghana is known not to use friendly matches to assert themselves. When have we played so well in friendly matches?
