Brazil: Black Stars test dia strength against five-time world champions Brazil - BBC News Pidgin"/>
Ghana played Brazil and Nicaragua in friendly matches as part of preparations for the World Cup. The Black Stars lost to Brazil by 3 goals to nil and won by a lone goal against Nicaragua.
Ex Black Stars player, Dan Owusu has sent a word of advise to the Ghana Football Association and the coaches of the Black Stars to drop Hearts of Oak star, Daniel Barnieh and Serie A player, Afena Gyan from the team.
According to Dan Owusu, the two players are not up to the standard of the team and must therefore make way for other players. The ex player said “I joined the Black Stars as a young player but I didn’t get playing time because there were senior players. When they faded out, we succeeded them, and that is how the national team should be”.
The three time GPL top scorer (1974, 1975, 1976) added that "both Barnieh and Afena-Gyan are not up to the national team level. I think they should just understudy the senior players and I believe with time, they will get there,”.
