I was very disappointed – Ghana coach Otto Addo on Brazil defeat
Ghana coach Otto Addo said he was disappointed by his side’s 3-0 defeat against Brazil in a pre-World Cup friendly on Friday.
The five-time World Champions scored three first half goals through Marquinhos and Richarlison within 28 minutes as Black Stars struggled to cope with the pace and tempo of the game.
Ghana will take on Nicaragua on Tuesday, September 27, 2022.
“In all, the team was bad, if you lose 3-0 you’re bad,” coach Addo said after Ghana suffered their fifth defeat in as many meetings with Brazil.
“I was very disappointed, especially with the set-pieces. They had a lot of chances. We were a bit lucky in some situations they didn’t score.
“If you see how many times they (Brazil) have scored three or four goals, then nobody’s ready.
“It’s not like we were playing against some small boys. They’re really, really good.”
The former Ghana international added, “We lost 3-0 so everybody probably thinks this is a weak team. This is maybe an advantage for us.”
“Everything brings something good if you learn from it. I hope that I learnt myself. Maybe I have to do some things differently. If everybody thinks like that then we’ll do better. I’m not concerned at all
“I made some mistakes, I will learn from them and can hopefully improve. The second half showed we can compete with them.”
