Former President John Dramani Mahama is of the view that even though Friday's international friendly match between Ghana and Brazil seems to favour Brazil in many respects, the Black Stars of Ghana will emerge victorious.

For him, the Black Stars play best when people consider them underdogs, adding that "they will rise to the occasion and make us proud."

The former President in a post on Facebook Friday aftternoon [September 23, 2022] encouraged the Black Stars to give their best to the game and win the match.

Available records indicate that Ghana has lost all four previous clashes against Brazil. After today's match, Ghana will travel to Spain to encounter lowly-ranked Nicaragua in their second warm-up match on Tuesday.
