Ghana Coach Oozing Confidence Ahead Of Uruguay Clash

Ghana national team head coach Otto Addo has expressed his strong belief that the Black Stars will produce a positive result when they play Uruguay, on Friday, and qualify to the knockout stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The Black Stars opened their participation with a disappointing 3-2 loss to Portugal, but were back into winning ways when they beat South Korea 2-0 four days ago.

Despite the lukewarm showing, Addo is confident that his boys are capable of cruising past the fancied Uruguay, whom they painfully  lost to at the 2020 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

“For me, it’s a normal game, but like everyone, I was really sad in 2010 when that incident [of Luis Suarez denying Ghana a certain goal] happened and we missed our chance to proceed to the semis. But it is 12 years ago and Friday will be a different match with a different approach,” Addo said as quoted by the Ghana FA website.

“We are confident enough to know that we can beat them and make it to the next round. We are gradually picking up and I know the boys will show a lot of fight and a lot of passion.

Uruguay drew with South Korea and are at the bottom of the group with a point, the same as the latter who have a superior goal difference.

Ghana are lying second in Group H with three points and they will be guaranteed passage to the round of 16 with victory against two-time champions Uruguay on Friday.
