Chris Hughton is optimistic about carrying Ghana’s second-half momentum from the Madagascar game into their upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifier against Comoros.
Despite a sluggish start at the Baba Yara Stadium, the Black Stars’ impressive turnaround secured a crucial win through Inaki Williams’ late header.
Hughton, the team’s coach, emphasizes the significance of the victory and hopes to maintain the positive momentum for the Comoros match on Tuesday.
Reflecting on the game, he stated, “The importance of the win is massive. We would have loved to have done it more comfortably in the first half, but that’s football. All you look [for] is to get some momentum from this. We all hope that the momentum from the second half will be taken into Comoros.”
As Ghana gears up for the Comoros clash, they are mindful of the previous disappointing encounter during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
In that match, Ghana suffered a 3-2 defeat in their final group game, leading to their elimination—a performance considered one of Ghana’s worst in AFCON history.
