How to Watch Ghana vs Switzerland: Live Stream, TV Channel, Start Time
Ghana and Switzerland will face off in a World Cup warm-up match in Abu Dhabi on Thursday morning.
The meeting makes history on multiple fronts. It marks the first time two division leaders face off internationally and the first non-soccer event ever played at the home of Bayern Munich.
Ghana and Switzerland go test dia strengths today inside friendly match ahead of 2022 Qatar World Cup which go start on Sunday.
Dis be de first meeting between de two countries on de field of play.
Unlike Ghana wey struggle to sail through to de tournament, Switzerland qualify to de World Cup two points ahead of top kontries like Italy.
In dia qualifiers, dem no lose even one single point against kontries like Spain, Portugal and Czech Republic.
Ghana dey hope say by playing Switzerland wey beat Portugal, a win or draw against Switzerland means de Black Stars go fit handle Portugal.
The Africa Cup of Nations at the start of the year proved disastrous, and cost Milovan Rajevac, the man who took them to the World Cup quarter-finals in 2010, his job.
A defeat to Morocco was no surprise, but failing to beat a Gabon side without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before losing to debutants Comoros was a national humiliation.
With Rajevac on his way out, Otto Addo came in to guide them through the World Cup playoffs, which would come just two months later.
The debacle at AFCON was soon forgotten though, as Ghana pulled off a surprise in drawing 1-1 in Nigeria to claim a place at the World Cup on away goals.
Recent September friendlies also provided mixed results, as they comfortably lost to Brazil before beating Nicaragua.
Switzerland offer a better middle ground in terms of testing the Black Stars, as they are on a similar level to Portugal and Uruguay, two of the sides Ghana will face in the group stage next week.
For the Swiss, life after Vladimir Petkovic truly starts here, as Murat Yakin prepares for his first major tournament in charge of the European nation.
Italy’s complete capitulation following their Euro 2020 success opened the door for Switzerland to cruise past them to top the group and secure their place at these finals.
Drawing home and away with the Azzurri was vital, and rather fortunate for the Swiss considering Jorginho missed penalties in both fixtures, but a 4-0 demolition over Bulgaria on the final matchday saw them deservedly seal their spot in Qatar.
Fortunes went relatively downhill post-qualification though, as Switzerland won none of their following five matches, as a draw with Kosovo being the only time they avoided defeat during that run.
That saw them lose their opening three UEFA Nations League games, but they avoided relegation from League A by roaring back to win their final three – no mean feat facing sides of the calibre of Spain, Portugal and Czech Republic.
