Published on: 23 August 2022

Ghana coach Otto Addo will get the opportunity to  assess his team ahead of the 2022 World Cup with two high-profile friendlies secured by the Ghana Football Association.

The Black Stars will face five-time World Champions Brazil and European giants Switzerland in friendly games ahead of the World Cup.

Ghana will play Brazil in September during the international break at a yet to be disclosed venue in Europe.

For the Switzerland game it will be the final preparatory game before the World Cup kicks off on November 20,2022.

Game has been scheduled for November 17,2022.

The two is expected to give coach Otto Addo a fair idea of how to approach the opening Group game against Portugal.

The Dortmund trainer will get to assess the new players to have switched nationality ahead of the World Cup, Tariq Lamptey (Brighton), Inaki Williams (Atletico Bilbao) , Patrick Pfeffier (Hamburg), Ransford Yeboah (Hamburg) and Stephen Ambrosius (Hamburg) for the friendlies including Mohammed Salisu (Southampton) who has agreed to also play for the Black Stars.

Coach Otto Addo will have a headache in selecting his final 26-man squad for the tournament due to the quality in the Black Stars camp.

Ghana have been drawn in Group H at the 2022 World Cup alongside Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay.

Ghana qualified to the World Cup after edging Nigeria in the play-offs in March.
