The Black Stars of Ghana will come up against Nicaragua in an International friendly game at the Estadio Francisco Artés Carrasco based in Lorca on Tuesday, September 26.
Ghana are hoping to put their preparations for the 2022 World Cup on track after losing 3-0 to giants Brazil at the Stade Oceane in Le Harve on Friday night.
The Black Stars will head into the game without the services of Thomas Partey. The Arsenal midfielder was granted permission by the Ghana FA to travel back to London for further assessment after picking up a suspected knee injury in the warmup of the defeat to Brazil.
In spite of his absence, head coach Otto Addo has a decent team to outwit Nicaragua.
Otto Addo is expected to make numerous changes to the team that lost 3-0 to Brazil. The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder is expected to maintain the 3-4-3 formation that changed the dimension of the game in the second half against Brazil.
Goalkeeper Richard Ofori who hasn’t featured for the team since September 2021 against South Africa is expected to start to start in goal.
Mohammed Salisu who’s largely credited for Ghana’s decent display in the second half against Brazil is expected to start in defense, alongside Daniel Amartey and Alexander Djiku.
Tariq Lamptey is expected to earn his first start, starting at right wing back. Gideon Mensah is expected to occupy the left wing back position, while Elisha Owusu and Daniel Kofi-Kyereh occupy the midfield positions.
The attack is expected to be led by Inaki Williams, Antoine Semenyo and Osman Bukari.
The game will kickoff at 6:00pm GMT and will be telecasted on Max TV, GFA App and Star Times Adepa channel.
