Otto Addo admits Brazil selection gaffe, pledges to do better

Otto Addo has admitted he made mistakes with his selection on Friday night as Black Stars suffered a 3-0 loss to the Selecao.

In what looked more like a one-sided game, Brazil’s first-half brilliance did the damage as they put three goals past Ghana.

Addo’s starting line-up for the game came under huge criticism and the gaffer was quick to admit he made mistakes in the clash against the five-time world champions in Le Havre.

“I will start with myself because maybe the system was wrong. I have to look at it again and question myself first,” Addo said after the game.

“The lineup was good, but we have to work harder, especially on the set pieces and we have to work harder to close the lines. There were too many gaps between the lines.

“I think I made mistakes, I learnt a lot more about my players, and picking the next 11 will depend on the performance in the next game.”

Addo however, commended the second half performance from his team.

“In the second half, we showed we can also compete with them not only against the ball but also with the ball. Better positions, we had some half chances. I’m happy that in the second half we didn’t allow [a lot of chances].”

The Black Stars will face Nicaragua in the next game on Tuesday in Spain.
