The Brazilian team enters the field this Friday (23), to play its penultimate game before the debut in the Qatar World Cup, which takes place on November 24. The challenge will be against the Ghanaian team, which is also guaranteed at the World Cup and could even be on Brazil’s path in a possible round of 16 dispute. Coach Tite will present some news and has already confirmed the lineup.
The great absences of the Brazilian team for this sequence of friendlies are on the left side. Injured, Alex Sandro, from Juventus, and Guilherme Arana, from Atlético-MG, were not called up. Arana’s situation is more complicated and the player is even out of the World Cup dispute, while Alex Sandro should be at the World Cup. Thus, Alex Telles, from Sevilla, will be the starter against Ghana.

Tite left out other important names such as Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus, but gave Everton Ribeiro and Pedro, both from Flamengo, a chance. The coach will use the friendlies to define the final call-up of the World Cup. In addition to facing Ghana, Brazil is also facing a friendly against Tunisia, on the 27th of September. The idea of the technical commission is to test the selection against teams from the African school. Brazil’s group at the World Cup has Cameroon and also Serbia and Switzerland.

Marcella Lima, sector manager:
The Brazilian team arrives motivated and in a good moment, in an undefeated way, since the Ghanaians come from a defeat and did not have a good campaign in the last Nations Cup. I believe that Brazil will impose itself without many difficulties.
guess: Brazil 3×0 Ghana
João Eduardo, sector manager:
It will be an important match for Brazil, with the World Cup approaching, the team needs to win and try to play well. I believe it will be a complicated game, against a strong team that has a good transition game and should try to attack Brazil on the counterattacks. I think Tite should test some players, but without giving up a starting base.
guess: Brazil 3×1 Ghana
Ricardo Oliveira, sector manager:
Facing teams from the African school is always a great challenge for Brazil and it is necessary in this period when the World Cup is approaching. Despite some embezzlement and changes, the Brazilian team is favorite and should confirm this on the field. The expectation is for a difficult game, but with a Brazilian advantage.
guess: Brazil 3×1 Ghana
