Chris Hughton has apologized for Ghana’s disappointing output against the United States of America on Wednesday morning.
Ghana lost 4-0 to the USA at GEODIS Park in a calamitous outing. The Ghanaian team had lost by 2-0 to Mexico over the weekend and went into the USA match looking for a positive reaction but things went horribly worse for the West African team.
A Gio Reyna brace, Christian Pulisic penalty and Folarin Balogun’s sublime finish gave the States the most famous victory against the Black Stars in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I’m very sorry, and I take responsibility for the poor performance against the USA,” Hughton said.
Ghana will play Madagascar and Comoros in two FIFA World Cup qualifiers in November.
