The Black Stars of Ghana suffered their fifth defeat against Brazil on Friday night after losing 3-0 at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre, France.
A Ricarlison brace and another for Marquingos in the opening 45 minutes were enough for Tite’s side to pick up a win.
Despite a much better performance in the second half, Ghana ended the game trailing 3-0.
Here is how the players were rated:
Jojo Wollacott – 4.5
Wollacott, despite conceding three goals, made six saves in the game. He had a much better game in the second 45 minutes of the game.
Denis Odoi – 4
Odoi had a tough first half trying to stop Vinicius Junior and struggled on most occasions anytime he came up against the Real Madrid star.
Daniel Amartey – 5
Amartey played the entire duration of the game and was arguably one of Ghana’s performers in the game. He made five recoveries and completed two interceptions in the game.
Alexander Djiku – 5
The centre-back won all three of the tackles he competed and managed four clearances although there was very little he could do about the goals conceded.
Baba Rahaman – 4
It was a decent outing for the Reding defender who was making a return to the starting line-up, being picked ahead of Gideon Mensah.
Baba Iddrisu – 4
Playing as the lone pivot at some point, Iddrisu struggled defensively and his control when in possession was not the best against the Selecao.
Mohammed Kudus – 6
After a disappointing opening half, Kudus returned from the recess with glimpses of his quality, as he created three chances. On the defensive side, he won three tackles.
Andre Ayew – 4.5
Andre was the closest player to finding the back of the net but his header from inside the box came off the crossbar. Just like most players, Andre also had a better second half.
Kamaldeen Sulemana – 4
Kamaldeen struggled playing as the right winger and was taken off after just 45 minutes. He had 27 touches of the ball during his time on the field.
Jordan Ayew – 4.5
Jordan played the entire duration of the game and came into the picture a couple of times when Ghana carried the ball from their own half. He was however helpful in helping out in defence.
Felix Afena-Gyan – 3.5
With his lack of experience, the teenager struggled as the lone striker in the game as he barely made the Brazil defence work. He had just 13 touches in his 45 minutes of action.
Mohammed Salisu – 5.5
Making his first appearance for the Black Stars, Salisu slotted in well and misplaced just three of his 25 passes. The Southampton star looked comfortable playing as the third centre-back in the second half.
Inaki Williams – 5
Inaki Williams was presented with some good opportunities when he came on and kept making runs, a part of his game which was missed in the opening half.
Tariq Lamptey – 4
It was just a first outing for him and he looked decent. He tracked Rodrygo Goes quite well after coming on.
Elisha Owusu – 4
His introduction was needed as Baba Iddrisu looked shaky in the last minutes of the game. He brought a bit of stability to the midfield.
Daniel-Kofi Kyereh – N/A
He had little time to make any impact in the game.
