‘I’m not worried’ – Otto Addo on Black Stars form

Black stars head coach, Otto Addo, says he is not worried about growing pressure to win games with the national team.

Addo has won just 1 of his 7 games in charge of the national team, leading them to the 2022 World Cup against Nigeria in his first two games.

Both games ended in a draw as Ghana sealed qualification to the quadrennial mundial.

Since then, Ghana has only managed to beat Madagascar, a 3-0 win in Cape Coast in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The run has included 2 defeats to Japan (4-1) and Brazil (3-0), and draws against Central African Republic (1-1) and Chile (0-0).

Ghana face Nicaragua in Spain on Tuesday evening in another international friendly ahead of November’s World Cup in Qatar.

Asked if the Nicaragua game is a must-win for his team, Addo said: “We are using these matches to try a lot of things, not only on the players but also for my side on systems, so we have to find that together. This is very important for us as a team.

“We have new players in each position we need to integrate and a whole a lot of things and we also want to use these games for everyone to show themselves at the training and also in the games and I am not worried.

“We have to take the right conclusions out of every match and prepare ourselves for the World Cup.”

Kick off for Ghana vs Nicaragua is 18:00GMT.
