Ghana Head Coach Chris Hughton has opened up on the Black Stars’ readiness for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations Matchday 4 qualifier against Angola on Monday.
The former Norwich City, Tottenham Hortspur, Brighton and Hove Albion and Newcastle United manager is aiming for his second win on the bounce after leading the Black Stars to a 1-0 win against Angola on Thursday.
“I think again, a difficult game. Angola showed in big parts of the game the quality that they have got, their way of play. I don’t think there will be too many surprises in the way they play because they are a very technical and they like to play very expansive game. It’s about making sure that we on the day defend well, play as a unit and take our opportunities, perhaps a little bit better than what we did in the first game.” He told Ghanafa.org
The former Newcastle United boss also highlighted on the need to take chances in a bid to get good results in Monday’s clash.
“I think both teams want to start well, it’s a big part of the game, there will be a big crowed there tomorrow so they will want to get the crowed going. But we had a good start in the last game, played well, had opportunities and didn’t take them and what happens is if you don’t take them, the opposition grow in confidence so we just need to make sure that we are in the game all of the time and take the opportunities when we can.” Hughton added.
