Black Stars boss draws lessons from 2-2 draw with Uganda

Black Stars coach Otto Addo has shared a few thoughts after Tuesday’s international friendly against Uganda in Marrakech.

Ghana conceded an 83rd minute goal to draw 2-2 with the Cranes and finished the game with ten-men following red cards to substitutes Mohammed Salisu and Alidu Seidu.

The Black Stars opened their goal account in the 7th minute through Jerome Opoku but Steven Mukwala drew Uganda level before Jordan converted from the spot inside 27 minutes to restore Ghana’s lead.

Uganda bounced back for the second time with a late equalizer through substitute Muhammad Shaban.

Captain Andre Ayew was later introduced as he came in for brother Jordan Ayew but his presence didn’t yield the desired result as Paul Put’s men held on for a 2-2 draw – extending Ghana’s winless run to seven games across competitions.

”It was a good learning curve today, there were some good parts but in all surely, it’s a way too less to play 2-2 against Uganda, we expected more even though a lot of players were missing, I don’t have to say. But we could have done better. We were a little bit unlucky with the two goals against us – with the penalty and the second one I don’t know if it was even a goal. But in all the football we played was not good enough, we should have created more chances especially in the final third” the gaffer told in his post match press conference.

“ We have to work on creating more chances, finishing must be better under pressure; it’s a lot of work, a lot of work. But I have to say that this is what I expected because to be honest the last few games in general even before I came have not been good but it’s a process” he concluded.
