Brazil vs Ghana Prediction

Brazil will enter the upcoming World Cup as one of the favorites, and this highlights the strength and depth of the squad. Neymar continues to be the side's star, but the emergence of Vinicius Junior as a world-class performer, combined with the experience of established names like Casemiro, Alisson Becker and Thiago Silva bodes well for Tite's side.

Ghana, on the other hand, have the likes of Tariq Lamptey and Mohammed Salisu in their current squad. Lamptey is widely regarded as one of the best young players in the Premier League, while Salisu has slowly established himself in Southampton's backline. However, there will be focus on Mohammed Kudus; the 22-year old was close to joining Everton this summer, but is now one of Ajax's most important players.

Brazil will be the favorites to win.

Prediction: Brazil 3-0 Ghana
