Following his team’s performance against Nicaragua on Tuesday night, where they lacked composure and always wanted to hammer the ball in, Ghana’s coach Otto Addo expressed his displeasure.
After losing 3-0 to Brazil last Friday, Sporting Lisbon winger Abdul Fatawu Issahaku scored the game’s lone goal in the 35th minute to help the Black Stars get back on track in Lorca.
In a lackluster effort against the Central American country, which is ranked 79 places lower than Ghana, they wasted a ton of opportunities.
After the game, coach Addo acknowledged that his team could have scored more goals if they had been more proficient in front of goal.
“It is just like we have to be a little bit more composed, a little bit also more cool on the ball and sometimes we have to take some time and make another cut, maybe lay it off to a player who is in a position to score,” the 47-year-old said.
“We were also unlucky at some point not to score more goals and there goalkeeper did very well, and we have to be a little bit precise instead of always wanting to hammer the ball into the net, we have a young squad, a lot of young players today, and a squad of new players, and this is quite normal.”
Seven days before Ghana’s World Cup opener against Portugal, on November 17, Switzerland will play Ghana in another warm-up match.
