    Good evening from France

    Welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of the international friendly between Brazil and Ghana at Stade Oceane.

    The two teams have already punched their ticket to this winter’s 2022 World Cup group stage in Qatar.

    The friendly takes place in Le Havre to reduce travel time and pressure for each country’s Europe-based players.

    Brazil manager Tite is set for his last hurrah as he stated he will step down after the upcoming tournament, which means this will be his last crack at glory with his national team with which he only won the Copa America in 2019.

    The Selecao boss has made some shock omissions from his squad, such as Arsenal aces Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Magalhaes.

    It becomes more baffling considering Tite picked Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino, Atletico Madrid‘s Mattheus Cunha and Flamengo's Pedro ahead of him.

    Juventus star Alex Sandro has withdrawn due to a thigh injury, which means Nottingham Forest's Renan Lodi may start at left-back.

    Ghana boss Otto Addo, on the other hand, has called up Brighton’s Tariq Lamptey and Athletic Bilbao’s Inaki Williams for the first time.

    Southampton ace Mohammed Salisu is also in line for an international debut tonight against Brazil.
