Ghana Run of Form

Ghana have had a busy 2022 between AFCON qualifying and the Kirin Cup. Unfortunately for them, positive results have been a rarity this year with just four to their name from 13 games. Two of those wins came in friendlies while one was a penalty shootout win, meaning they only have one singular competitive win in this calendar year.

The Black Stars coming away with the win would be something of a footballing miracle. Despite the patchy nature of Portugal’s recent results, they should have more than enough quality to beat a team struggling so much.
