The Black Stars will face five-time World champions Brazil on September 23, 2022 at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre, France in the first test game.

Ghana face Nicaragua four days later in the second friendly in Lorca in Spain on September 27, 2022.

Former Spain youth player Inaki Williams who has recently switched his international allegiance to represent the West African country has also been listed.

Arsenal star Thomas Partey is making a return to the team having missed the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Madagascar and Central African Republic in June through injury.

Hearts of Oak attacker Daniel Afriyie Barnieh who has been in blistering form for the Black Galaxies in CHAN qualifications is the only home based player named.
