Chris Hughton Makes Bold Statement in Luanda : Ghana head coach Chris Hughton has made a bold statement regarding Monday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualification match against Angola on Monday in Luanda.
Hughton marked his Black Stars debut with a slim 1-0 victory against the Palancas Negras at the Babayara sports stadium on Thursday 23rd March during Match-Day Three of the AFCON qualifying series.
Ghana , on seven points in three matches played , can get very closer to qualification with a victory on Monday and Hughton says the team is in Luanda to claim all the three points.
“The approach is that we are up against a good team. I can say something quite obvious, that we will have to defend well and we will have to attack well. Always try to get the balances.
We have to make sure that we are compact as team – this is for sure, because they are a good quality and they a very technical team.” , Hughton is quoted by ghanafa.org.
The former technical advisor to Black Stars head coach Otoo Addo continued :
“But we are here to win the game and you can’t win the game unless you give yourself an opportunity to attack and to attack well. We have to be careful how we do this.
If the game becomes too open, if it becomes end to end then of course it can be for any team so we have to have a strategy going into the game as we would in any game.
They are playing at home; they will try to use their support. But we are a good team, we managed to get the victory a few days ago and it’s something we want to build on.” . he added.
