Brazil defeated the Ghana Black Stars by a lone goal in an international friendly September 5, 2011 played at the Craven Cottage in UK.

Leandro Damiao scored the goal for Brazil on the stroke of halftime.

Ghana’s squad was without Striker Asamoah Gyan and playmaker Dede Ayew with defender Daniel Opare red carded but goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey was incredible during the match preventing goal attacks from former world best player Ronaldinho and AC Milan’s Alexander Pato.

The defeat means Brazil has beaten Ghana in three successive encounters in five years.

The first was at the 2006 World Cup when the Selecao thrashed the Black Stars by three goals to nothing of which Ronaldo, after scoring, made history as the highest goal-scorer in the FIFA World Cup.

Brazil again defeated Ghana by a lone goal in 2007 in Stockholm, Sweden in a friendly game.
