Ghana 2-2 Uganda: Black Stars player ratings

The Black Stars of Ghana have been held to a 2-2 draw by the Cranes of Uganda in their final friendly game in the March international break.

Although the Black Stars put up a fine display, the team’s inability to create chances cost the team.

Here is how every player fared in the game played at Grande de Stade Marrakech, Morocco.

Joseph Wollacott – After watching the game against Nigeria from the bench last Friday, Joseph Wollacott had the chance to play today.

Although he was not called into action that much, he conceded twice. After making a few good saves in the second half, he earned a rating of 6.2.

Denis Odoi – The Professor started in the right-back position and as expected was not shy to run up and down to play various roles in attack and defence respectively.

He won the penalty that was converted in the first half by Jordan Ayew. A rating of 6.4 is not bad for the full-back.

Edmund Addo – In his new role in the heart of defence, Edmund Addo once again put in a good shift. His composure even when under pressure saw the Black Stars playing from the back and getting out of tight positions.

With his impressive passing and organisation at the back, he earns a rating of 6.5.

Abdul Fatawu Issahaku – The Leicester City man was clearly missing his shooting boots today.

He tried a couple of efforts from outside the box in the first half but never hit the target. He improved his decision-making in the second half and played some eye-catching through balls. He gets a rating of 6.3.

Jordan Ayew – Ghana’s key man today perhaps. Jordan Ayew provided the assist for Ghana’s first goal today and scored as well, making it two goals in his last two Black Stars games.

But for his inability to pass the ball quicker to get the attack going, he could have earned a higher rating. His shortcoming meant he only earned a rating of 7.

Francis Abu – One of the new talented Black Stars players. With his first start in the national team, the former FC Nordsjaelland man made a good account of himself.

He can only get better and become an asset for the national team. His rating is 6.5.

Jerome Opoku – Unlike the game against Nigeria where he was shown the red card, the defender managed to last the entire duration of the contest against Uganda.

He was brilliant on the ball and made a good account of himself. A rating of 6.7 for the youngster.

Ebenezer Annan – Started the game a bit jittery but managed to recover to put up a brilliant display.

His ability to take on players came in handy when he burst forward to augment the attack of the Black Stars. Good game overall for the defender, 6.5.

Abdul Salis Samed – Taking up the responsibility as Ghana’s main man in midfield, Abdul Salis Samed organized things very well for the national team. A good day at the office for the RC Lens man. 6.8.

Ernest Nuamah – Very lively just like his performance against Nigeria last Friday. He now just needs to get into the box more to try to score for the Black Stars. His touches and ability to go past players were just a joy to watch. 6.9 rating for the talented forward.

Antoine Semenyo – Didn’t impact the game today. Had a few chances but his inability to find the target let the team down. A rating of 6.0 for the forward.

Subs:

Tariq Lamptey – The Brighton man came in to dazzle with his strong display. Was good seeing him get minutes after his long absence from the Black Stars. He gets a rating of 6.0.

Alidu Siedu – N/A

Mohammed Salisu – N/A

Andre Ayew – N/A

Ibrahim Osman – N/A
