Portugal line-up Egypt friendly to prepare against Ghana at World Cup

Ghana’s World Cup opponents Portugal have lined up a friendly against Egypt in May to help them prepare to face the Black Stars at the tournament in Brazil in June.

Portugal will face the Pharaohs in London on 25 May as part of their preparations for the world football’s flagship event.

The Black Stars will take on the Portuguese in the final Group G match on 26 June at the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia.

The Europeans have lined up the friendly against the Egyptians to give them a fair idea of playing against African sides.

This will prepare them to face Ghana in their last group match at the World Cup in Brazil.

Portugal’s friendly against Egypt is timely for the Europeans as the Pharaohs faced Ghana in the playoffs for the World Cup.

Ghana whitewashed Egypt on that occasion but the Portuguese are hoping to pick some valuable lessons from the match to help them take on the Black Stars.

Egypt, who have not played a match since the 2-1 win over Ghana in World Cup Qualification, will begin their quest to qualify for the 2015 AFCON held in Morocco in July, after failing to appear at the previous two editions.

    lol that’s very smart of Portugal, Ghana should have lined up a friendly with Sweden also, but let the Portuguese know that Egypt only beat us in Cairo because we wanted to get out of Cairo safe and unharmed, not because they are better than us.

  2. spellBOUND says:

    Watch, Egypt will beat these Ronaldo led Portuguese.

    • spellBOUND says:

      Egypt do not play tough gritty African football. Their style is more European, so Portugal is just going to be playing another European team. Burkina would have given them a better fight

  3. lol says:

    I hope Portugal looses this friendly. That’s how they usually learn. They will go far. Their going to be in a huge country that speaks Portuguese with allot of Portuguese supporters. The black what shomacallits have a good chance, but it will likely be Portugal and Germany qualifying, U.S second and the black thingies last.
