Head Coach of the Black Maidens, Evans Augustine Adotey has ascribed his side’s heavy win over Uruguay at the 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 campaign on a glittering note.
Captain Abdulai Mukarama scored a hat-trickk, with first half substitute Milot Pokuaa and Fuseina Mumuni scoring one each.
After a masterful display by the Black Maidens, Coach Evans Adotey says his charges fulfilled his game plan to perfection.
”Good start and brilliant display by my ladies. With three points in my basket that’s all I wanted. We came to defend and attack, attack and defend too so my tactics worked to perfection.” he said in a post-match interview.
“We planned on attacking and defending as well so my tactics worked to perfection as I said earlier.”
Ghana will face Finland in the 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 sit top of group A after the win over Uruguay with New Zealand in second place after narrowly defeating Finland in the other game.
