Draw against Uganda is a good learning experience – Ghana coach Otto Addo

Head coach of the Black Stars Otto Addo says his outfit stalemate against Uganda in the international friendly will serve as a valuable learning experience for the team.

The Black Stars failed to win their first two games in Otto Addo’s second stint as Ghana national team head coach.

The four-time Africa champions suffered a 2-1 defeat against traditional rivals Nigeria last Friday, conceding goals in both halves.

In their recent international friendly at Stade Marrakesh, the Black Stars twice surrendered their lead, resulting in a 2-2 draw against Uganda.

Defender Jerome Opoku headed home Ghana’s opening goal before Kotoko star Steven Desse Mukwala leveled pegging for Uganda.

Crystal Palace star Jordan Ayew converted from the spot to restore Ghana’s lead but the Cranes staged a comeback in the dyeing embers of the game to snatch a draw after Mohammed Shaban found the back of the net.

Speaking after the game, Otto Addo, who is set to leave Dortmund at the end of the season admitted there are a lot of work to be done considering the teams outfit during the international break.

“It was a good learning today, there were some good part. To play 2-2 against Uganda, we expected more even though a lot players were missing, I don’t have to say but still we could have done better, a bit unlucky with the two goals against us”

Ghana faces a crucial away 2026 World Cup qualifier against Mali in the neighboring West African nation, followed by another significant match against the Central African Republic back home three days later.
