Black Stars left-back, Gideon Mensah, says the team is ready to face any challenge from the Selecao of Brazil.

The two teams are scheduled to play in an international friendly on Friday to test their readiness ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Previous meetings between the two teams have all ended in favour of the South Americans and despite their huge pedigree in international football, the 24-year-old insists they are ready to match them boot for boot for the fifth time.

He told Ghanafa.org that after three days of training and what the players are doing, he was convinced that they were ready for the game.

"(Training) 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 ready and the new boys in the team have been very satisfying so I think we're ready.

He also praised the Ghana Football Association for putting such a high-profile game together, stating that it was a good choice to test their readiness ahead of the World Cup.

"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 the 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.
"This game will show if we are ready or we are getting close to our goals at the World Cup.
