As his team faces Sudan in the decisive final group match of the ongoing CHAN tournament in Algeria, Black Galaxies head coach Annor Walker promises a fresh strategy from his squad.
In their opening game, the Ghanaians were surprised by Madagascar, losing 2-1 in Constantine.
Before their matchup on Thursday against the Al Hilal and Al Al-Merrikh-dominated Sudanese team, the 2014 CHAN finalists will have their work cut out for them.
However, Ghana’s coach Annor Walker is unfazed and promises a new strategy and confrontation with the Sudanese.
“I wasn’t happy with my team, especially in the first half. We did not play the way we are used to. Our players were not mobile and after the changes in the second half we played better,” Walker said
“There were not a better side. We lost because we didn’t play the way we normally play. In the second half when we made our changes you see that we dominated the game but we failed to take our chances and that caused us’.
“The weather the was okay compared to the previous days since we arrived in Constantine. Though it was quite cold.
“After the game, the players were really down because we lost the game. We have met as a team and I can see how focused they are for Thursday’s game.
“They know what is at stake on Thursday. They are ready and their attitude will be different on Thursday.”
The group has been reduced to three countries as a result of the winners Morocco’s withdrawal from the competition due to a political disagreement with the tournament’s host Algeria.
