Published on: 26 March 2024

Ghana coach Otto Addo is anticipating a very tough test against Uganda in the upcoming international friendly game.

The Black Stars will lock horns with the Cranes of Uganda at the Grande de Stade Marrakech, Morocco, On Tuesday at 4pm.

Otto Addo and his charges are aiming to beat Uganda to bounce back from the 2-1 defeat against Nigeria four days ago.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Otto Addo disclosed his side will go into the game as favourites but is still anticipating a very tough test against Uganda.

“It’s a different setup, different hurdles for this match. I think this match we go as favourites but still it won’t be easy; we have been preparing like two or three systems which will suit the game."

He continued, "But I think if they come the way we expect, we have a good chance to beat them. I think the boys did well in training, a lot of the patterns look good and we still have to be aware, they have their qualities and we have to be concentrated but we are looking forward to this match, especially because we lost the first match we now want the victory."

With Ghana leading the head-to-head record 7-3, Addo's side aims to maintain their dominance over Uganda. Their most recent encounter in October 2017 ended in a goalless draw during the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The game will be streamed on the Ghana Football App and the official Ghana Football Association YouTube page.
