Portugal vs. Ghana World Cup time, live stream, TV channel, lineups, odds for FIFA Qatar 2022 game

Portugal and Ghana meet in Qatar on Thursday 24 November in their opening game of the 2022 World Cup.

These two teams also met in the group stage of the 2014 tournament when Portugal triumphed 2-1 thanks to a late goal from Cristiano Ronaldo.

The current Manchester United outcast will likely appear at his final World Cup, desperate to retrieve the biggest cutlery missing from his trophy cabinet.

Ghana are the lowest-placed nation going into Qatar and Portugal will appreciate their chances of a convincing win.

Line-up Portugal vs. Ghana

Portugal have arrived in Qatar without an injured trio Diogo Jota, Pedro Neto and Ricardo Pereira. Coach Fernando Santos set up a tight 4-3-3 formation in his last game before the World Cup and it’s unclear what form they will go into this game with.

Portugal (LINEUP, 4-3-3): 1 Patricio (GK) – 20 Cancelo, 4 Dias, 3 Pepe, 19 Mendes – 8 Fernandes, 14 Carvalho, 18 Neves – 10 Silva, 7 Ronaldo, 11 Felix

Both Camaldin Sulemana and Daniel Kofi Kyereh was called up to Ghana’s World Cup squad despite worrying about injury. Expect both Ayew brothers Andre and Jordan to both start in this one.

Ghana (4-2-3-1, right to left): 1 Ati-Zigi (GK) — 2 Lamptey, 18 Amartey, 4 Salisu, 17 Rahman — 5 Partey, 6 Owusu — 13 Afriyie, 10 A Ayew, 9 J Ayew — 19 Williams.
