The difference in level was too big between Brazil and Ghana in this friendly match. The Brazilians delivered a spectacular performance and delighted the Océane stadium in Le Havre (3-0).
Brazil was in demonstration against Ghana this Friday evening (3-0). A good omen for the men of Tite a few weeks before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. For Ghana, this is worrying. The Ghanaians failed to get any chance and were suffocated by the technical class of the Seleçao.
A one-sided first half
The Brazilians started the game strong and chained the big chances (5th, 8th). Ten minutes will be enough for Tite’s men to take control. Raphinha kicks a corner and Marquinhos, all alone, rises perfectly to place his header which ends up in the net. 1-0. The Brazilians are still pushing and will double the bet. Neymar is found in the middle of the field and sends a ball to the ground in the race of Richarlison just in front of the surface. The Tottenham player strikes in first intention, it is in the small left net of the Ghanaian goalkeeper. Wonderful ! It’s not over, this first period will turn into humiliation. Richarlison him again! Neymar crosses to the near post and this time it’s Richarlison who sends an uncrossed header. The double for him and note second decisive pass for Neymar! The Brazilians return to the locker room leading 3-0.
A Ghana without reaction
The second half is better balanced and the Ghanaians will even have a huge chance. Williams, barely coming into play, already makes the difference on the right side and a corner. On the set kick, André Ayew places a header pushed back by the bar! First danger on Alisson’s cages. Only action to note in this second period which is much less intense. Brazil is the less sharp and Ghana tries to put in difficulty its adversary but without success. Brazil manages the match but a few chances at the end of the game. Rodrygo is launched on the left and triggers a cross strike. It is pushed back by Wollacott and the leather falls on a Brazilian, alone in front of the cages, but Salisu intervenes on his line. The score remains there and Brazil crushes Ghana 3-0.
