World Cup 2022: I want my players to show mental toughness, passion against Uruguay – Ghana coach Otto Addo

Published on: 30 November 2022

Ghana head coach, Otto Addo has disclosed that he is impressed with the unity in the camp of the team.

According to him, he expects that in the final Group H match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup against Uruguay, the Black Stars will show passion and stay mentally strong to earn the desired result.

“Just as everybody, I said to the boys, the way the players who don’t play behave is more important because they were singing from the beginning, bringing energy to the camp, they were celebrating with those who play so for me it’s not about an individual, it’s about the team.

“Surely Andre Ayew is a little bit different because he was there. He watched with his own eyes what happened in that game so for him I think it’s even a stronger feeling in this match but it’s about the team.

“I said it from the beginning that if we want to have a chance in this World Cup it’s about team work and for this we need to connect, we showed that we have a lot of passion, mentally we were very strong and I want the players to show it in the last game of the group stage,” Coach Otto Addo said as quoted on the website of the Ghana FA.

The match between Ghana and Uruguay is scheduled to be played on Friday, December 2.
