FIFA U-17 WWC: Coach Evans Adotey lauds players tactical masterclass against Uruguay

Published on: 14 November 2018

Black Maidens head coach Evans Adotey has attributed his side's big win over Uruguay at the on-going FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup to the tactical discipline of his team. 

Ghana walloped hosts Uruguay 5-0 at the Estadio Charrua on Tuesday night to begin their Group A contest on a good note.

Goals from Milot Pokuaa, Fuseina Mumuni and a hat-trick from captain Abdulai Mukarama condemn Uruguay to their heaviest defeat of the campaign.

After beating Uruguay convincingly on the night, an elated coach Evans Adotey said his girls carried out his tactics to perfection.

"It was a very good performance, we planned on attacking and defending as well so my tactics worked to perfection as I said earlier," he said in a post-match interview.

Ghana will face Finland in their second game of the competition on Friday and coach Adotey, who is bent on qualifying from the group stage as earlier as possible, says the team will identify the weak spots from the game last night and correct them before the game against the Europeans.

"Well, we need to go back and then make corrections on what we saw wrong today and how we can improve on our tactics so the day will decide," he added.

Ghana are at the summit of the Group A table after the win over Uruguay with New Zealand in second place after narrowly defeating Finland 1-0 in the other game.
