Ghana Need To Be 'Precise Instead of Hammering The Ball' - Otto Addo

Ghana coach Otto Addo has warned his players to be precise in front of goal after their 1-0 friendly win against Nicaragua on Tuesday.

WHAT HAPPENED? The Black Stars needed a first-half goal to sink the Blue and White in their second friendly at Estadio Francisco Artes Carrasco on Tuesday. Ghana went into the game seeking to make amends having lost 3-0 to Brazil at Stade Oceane last Thursday.

Ghana started strongly against Nicaragua but they had to wait until the 35th minute when Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, who plays as an attacking midfielder for Sporting CP, curled in a left-footed effort into the roof of the net.

WHAT DID ADDO SAY? Speaking after the game, the 47-year-old Addo admitted his side should have scored more had they been precise in front of goal: "It is just like we have to be a little bit more composed, a little bit also more cool on the ball and sometimes we have to take some time and make another cut, maybe lay it off to a player who is in a position to score.

"We were also unlucky at some point not to score more goals and their goalkeeper did very well, and we have to be a little bit precise instead of always wanting to hammer the ball into the net, we have a young squad, a lot of young players today, and a squad of new players, and this is quite normal."
