Otto Addo reveals selection headache ahead of next international window

Ghana coach Otto Addo says it’d be difficult to select his team for the next international window because he was impressed with the players’ attitude this month.

Addo was speaking after Ghana beat Chile on penalties for third place in the Kirin Cup.

A great win for Ghana, given that Addo’s men forced a draw in regulation time despite playing 15 minutes of the second half with nine men after two players were controversially sent off. 

It was a better showing from the boys who faced backlash after Japan thumped them 4-1 in the tournament opener.

Ghana had earlier beaten Madagascar 3-0 and shockingly drew 1-1 with minnows the Central African Republic in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Although they ended the campaign with just a win, two draws and a defeat, Addo drew a lot of positives from the players and is already struggling to choose which players for the next assignments.

“I’m satisfied. I think we did well. This makes it difficult for me to choose the players for the next window which will be September and will be the last window for the World Cup and the decision will be with me. We will decide which player will come or not but this tournament was good for us to have some answers,” he said.

Ghana will play a doubleheader with Angola in September before they zoom into World Cup in Qatar, where they face an uphill task to progress from a group containing Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay.
