“It’s a different setup, different hurdles for this match”- Otto Addo explains why Ghana must beat Uganda today

Ghana Black Stars head coach Otto Addo has expressed his views about the international friendly against Uganda in Marrakech on today Tuesday 26th March 2024.

The former Ghana midfielder who is back on a long term contract led Ghana to the game against Nigeria on Friday after taking over from Chris Hughton.

Otto says he expects an improved performance in our second game against the Cranes at Grande de Stade Marrakech.

The Black Stars showed hunger and tenacity in the second half of the loss to Nigeria despite playing with 10-men following a red card to Turkey based defender Jerome Opoku in the 56th minute.

In the interview with the GFA MEDIA team, he touches on expectations against Uganda, Uganda’s last game against Comoros.

“It’s a different setup, different hurdles for this match. I think this match we go as favorites but still it won’t be easy; we have been preparing like two or three systems which will suit the game.

“But I think if they come the way we expect, we have a good chance to beat them. I think the boys did well in training, a lot of the patterns look good and we still have to be aware, they have their qualities and we have to be concentrated but we are looking forward to this match, especially because we lost the first match we now want the victory.

Otto was asked about Uganda’s performance after losing 4-0  to Comoros, and he reacted

“It is like always, like usual. I saw the match so we are well prepared. If you see the match it could have gone differently even though it was 4-0.

“There were a lot of unlucky decisions from Uganda perspective. I think this is the main thing if you take this kind of games too easy you won’t go nowhere.

“I hope that we will be able to score a goal in the first half because that will enlighten the things and if they have to come and try and equalize as it happened against Comoros, then we will have more space to exploit then we can also make the second goal.

“But like I said, I think the hardest thing will be the first half, to break them to score a goal once we achieve this. Everything is going to be easier.

The game against Uganda is scheduled for 16:00Hrs Kick Off at Grande de Stade Marrakech on Tuesday, March 26, 2024.
