Ghana will play Liberia in a friendly match at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, with kickoff scheduled for 4 p.m. local time.
The Black Stars enter the game with high spirits following their recent victory over the Central African Republic in Kumasi. In that match, the Central African Republic posed a significant challenge initially, threatening to deny Ghana a spot in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.
However, Ghana’s Right to Dream Academy graduates, Mohammed Kudus and Ernest Nuamah, turned the tide with two crucial goals, securing a victory and Ghana’s 10th consecutive AFCON qualification.
Now, all eyes are on Liberia, a team that did not manage to qualify for the AFCON. Nevertheless, they cannot be underestimated, as they will be eager for a memorable victory against Ghana.
Historically, Ghana hold the upper hand with an impressive eight wins out of 19 games played against Liberia since their first encounter in 1972. Notably, Liberia emerged victorious in their last encounter, defeating the Black Stars 2-0 in a friendly match in Monrovia.
This time, Liberia aim to replicate that success in Accra, where the Black Stars have sometimes faced challenges in defeating opponents compared to Kumasi. Both teams view this friendly as part of their preparations for the upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifiers set to kick off in November.
