Ghana vs Nicaragua: Inaki Williams, Lamptey starts, preview, team news, more

Ghana made a trip to Spain on Sunday for an international friendly game against Nicaragua at Francisco Artes Carrasco on Tuesday.

The Black Stars fell 3-0 against the South America heavyweights Brazil in another friendly played on Friday in France.

Coach Otto Addo and his men know that anything short of a convincing win on Tuesday would dampen the spirit of Ghanaians going into the World Cup in Qatar.

Coach Otto Addo is expected to play with three center-backs against Nicaragua owing to players at his disposal.

Mohammed Salisu, Tariq Lamptey and Inaki Williams – who switched their allegiance recently, might make their full debuts as well.

Nicaragua are ranked 139th in the World but have seen an improvement in their team performance in recent time following a seven match unbeaten run that ended on Thursday after losing 2-1 to Suriname. Still hurt by that defeat, the Central Americans see the match as an opportunity to make a case for themselves as they aim to go all out against the Black Stars in their first ever meeting in history.

With Thomas Partey out of the team due to injury, Coach Otto Addo still has a decent squad that can outwit their opponents following a gusty second half display against Brazil on Friday.

The introduction of debutants Salisu Mohammed, Tariq Lamptey and Inaki Williams changed the dimension of the game as the Stars showed class and resilience against the five-time World Champions.

Ghana are paired with Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in Group H. The match will take place at Estadio Francisco Artes Carrasco in Lorca at 20:00 Hrs on Friday, September 27, 2022.
