Brazil’s first half brilliance ensures 3-0 victory over Black Stars

The Black Stars 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 were enough for Tite’s side to pick up a win.

Marquinhos opened the scoring for the Selecao in the 19th minute of the game, rising the highest to Raphinha’s cross from the corner.

10 minutes later, Richarlison was on the finishing end of a well-worked Brazilian build-up, as he shot past Jojo Wollacott in post for the Black Stars.

Ghana looked non-existent even after conceding two goals in the opening 30 minutes.

Brazil, taking advantage of Ghana’s lack of control added a third with Richarlison scoring again from a Neymar set-piece to make it 3-0.

Otto Addo’s side went into the break trailing by three goals.

After the recess, Addo introduced Inaki Williams, who was making his debut after switching nationality while Mohammed Salisu also came on for the second 45 minutes.

Ghana looked lively in the opening 15 minutes of the half with Inaki making some good runs down the right but very little could be done from the half chances presented to them.

In terms of defending, the Black Stars were up to the task and held the Brazilians, who continued to threaten.

However, they were unable to add to their three goals scored from the opening 45 minutes as the game ended 3-0.

The Black Stars’ winless run against the Selecao continues after the game in France.

Addo’s side will face Nicaragua on Tuesday in their second game of this international window.
