In the past, the Black Stars of Ghana was regarded as one of the most fearsome teams in the world.

In the 60s, Ghana could boast of players like Ibrahim Sunday, Osei Kofi, Edward Acquah etc.

A throwback photo of how Black Stars battled the Spanish giants in a thrilling 6-goal friendly match has popped up.

In the said game, the Black Stars held Real Madrid who were then European champions.

The game which ended 3-3 came off on August 19, 1962, and it was played at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Ghana put its best foot forward, fielding a strong starting XI as it possibly could - Dodoo Ankrah, Frank Crentsil, E.O Oblitey, Ben Acheampong, Addo Odametey; Kofi Pare, Osei Kofi, Wilberforce Mfum, Mohammed Salisu; Edward Acquah, Edward Aggrey Fynn.

Madrid proved competitive too - obviously not here just for the fanfare and cash - and both teams eventually cancelled themselves out.

Three-all the exhibition match ended, with Ghana's two Edwards, Acquah (2) and Fynn (1), registering goals. Puskas' pair of strikes (one of which was scored on the stroke of full-time straight from the restart prompted by Ghana's late third goal) and Madrid legend Francisco 'Paco' Gento's finish completed the six-goal thriller.
