2022 World Cup: Ghana composition and possibilities impress Black Stars’ Addo

While key stars were not involved in the game, Ghana managed to see off the European nation in what was their last friendly match ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

Thomas Partey and Mohammed Kudus – who are among Ghana’s key players – did not play and Addo remained impressed with what the rest delivered even without the pair.

Partey was in the matchday squad and remained an unused substitute, while Ajax’s Kudus was absent altogether.

“It’s good for the team to see that we have a lot of players,” Addo said.

“As a coach, I will have to decide in the end, we have a lot of possibilities, and this gives us confidence. I want the team to stick together and come together, whether somebody is playing or not.

“Hopefully, we have a lot of games at the World Cup, and then I hope that everybody will get the chance to play, but for me, it’s important to see that everybody can play at this level.”

Although Addo insisted Ghana’s focus should be on the opening game against Portugal, he explained why he is looking forward to their match against South Korea.

“It’s actually now, and we did some preparation before, but we have to focus on Portugal, with all due respect to Korea, and I am looking forward to seeing my old friend Son [Heung-min].

“I was his coach at Hamburg when he was in U19, so I am happy to see him again, and it’s a different approach, but we have to focus on the next match.

“The next match is Portugal, with all due respect to Korea, but we have to look at Portugal and concentrate on them, and then we take one step at a time.”
