Otto Addo’s comment got Ghanaians worried ahead of Uganda clash

Ghana coach has opened up on the possibility on ringing changes to his starting line-up for their game against Uganda.

The Black Stars will lock horns with the Cranes of Uganda at the Grande de Stade Marrakech, Morocco at 4pm today.

Otto Addo and his charges are aiming to beat Uganda to bounce back from the 2-1 defeat against Nigeria four days ago.

Speaking ahead of the game, Otto Addo said he is not quite sure of making changes to the starting line-up that played against Nigeria but admits it will not be bad to try fresh legs against Uganda.

“I am not quite sure yet. Surely I think it won’t be bad to try fresh legs. Also in spite of the result, surely we are looking to win like every game. But also it’s another opportunity for me to see one or two players who haven’t played and I am still thinking if I should give one or two new players the chance in the first half, if not may be in the second half so we will see”

He also acknowledged the output of the new players in the team ahead of the Uganda game.

“Yes, sure, they did well, no doubt, especially in the second half when we were one man down and still dominating the game. This is not a normal procedure and I think this is what we need in the national team. Concurrence will make each player better and at the end the whole team will benefit” he added.

With Ghana leading the head-to-head record 7-3, Addo’s side aims to maintain their dominance over Uganda. Their most recent encounter in October 2017 ended in a goalless draw during the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The game will be streamed on the Ghana Football App and the official Ghana Football Association YouTube page.
