Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew has labelled Brazil “the best” in the world ahead of the international friendly on Friday.

Ghana face the South American side in a pre-World Cup friendly in Le Havre, France. The Samba Boys are unbeaten in 13 matches, scoring 30 goals in that run.

The five-time World Champions boast of 24 players plying their trade in Europe including Paris Saint Germain forward Neymar, Real Madrid duo, Vinicuis Jr. and Rodrygo, Barcelona’s Rafinha and Antony of Manchester United with two from their domestic league.

“Brazil currently for me is the best in the world. So we are playing the best and we have to acknowledge that they have players playing in the top clubs, week-in week-out, winning trophies,” Ayew told the press.

“We are not going to compare ourselves to them. That will be making mistake but we are going to challenge and go into the battle, that’s 100%.”

The Brazil friendly is one of two matches for Ghana with the second set to be played on September 27 against Nicaragua.
