Black Stars unlucky against Super Eagles-Addo


Ghana’s coach, Otto Addo, believed that the Black Stars were unlucky to lose to Nigeria’s Super Eagles in a friendly match held in Marrakech, Morocco on Friday, reports
Despite Jordan Ayew’s late penalty, the Super Eagles secured their first win over the Black Stars in 16 years, with goals from Cyriel Dessers and Ademola Lookman.
Addo, who was reappointed as the Black Stars’ coach earlier this month, praised his team’s second-half performance, stating that there is still room for improvement. He was impressed with Ghana’s control of the game and their ability to create chances, especially in the second half.
Although Addo did not want to focus too much on the positives because of the loss, he acknowledged that the team was unlucky to concede the first goal.
He said, “The ball hit the hand, but like I said we were unlucky.”
He added that Ghana had a slow start in the first half, but in the second half, they did well, despite playing with ten men.
He credited the team for their control and their efforts to create chances, saying, “We were a little bit unlucky with the finishing.”
Moreover, Addo believed that Ghana was close to equalizing, but Nigeria’s second goal ended their hopes of a draw. He admitted that a draw would have been deserved, but the loss means the team has to improve and move on.
