Ghana defender Gideon Mensah believes playing against Brazil is a good test ahead of World Cup
Ghana left-back Gideon Mensah says playing Brazil in an international friendly is a good test ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Black Stars will take on the five-time champions on Friday, September 23 in Le Harve before travelling to Spain to face Nicaragua on Tuesday, September 27 in Lorca.
Mensah has established himself in the Black Stars since he made his debut in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa at the Cape Coast stadium.
“Its been good so far, we have been here for three days now and looking at how the training is going I think we are fully ready and the new boys in the team have been very satisfying so I think are ready,” AJ Auxerre defender told ghanafa.org.
“Playing against a country like Brazil is a good test for Ghana, going to the World Cup it’s a good choice for Ghana. I give thumbs up to the GFA for giving us this opportunity to play against a team like Brazil.
“Being ready means, we are going to compete against the best countries in the World Cup so playing against Brazil on Friday is going to be a good test for us so for sure we are fired up.”
