This contest would go down as the very first encounter between the sides who aim to test their levels of fitness, bonding, and tactical set-pieces. Domestic attendees would for sure witness a thrilling game as the Black Stars expose a glimpse of her World Cup expectations.
Switzerland (The Red Crosses)
The Red Crosses drew to the Italians in a one-one (1-1) game and thrashed Bulgaria in a four-nil (4-0) game to secure their spot in Group G, for the Qatar tournament.
Winning all their previously lost games in the second leg matches of their UEFA Nations League against the Czech Republic, Spain, and Switzerland, they have shown that no mettle is high enough to not be surmounted.
Having a rather temperate qualification journey, the Swiss pose a better middle ground by offering experience from their Uefa Nations League clash against Portugal, one of the teams faced by rivals Ghana.
Arsenal's Granit Xhaka would captain the Red Crosses leading in the midfield, dominating defenses, and coordinating the frontlines. The team consists of tournament veterans like Fabian Schar (Newcastle United, English Premier League), Haris Seferovic (Galatasaray; Turkey Premier League), Breel Embolo( Monaco, French Ligue 1), Djibril Sow (Eintracht Frankfurt; German Bundesliga) and Ricardo Rodriguez (Torino; Italian Serie A).
