Switzerland game great test for Ghana – Otto Addo

Coach of the Black Stars Otto Addo says the friendly against Switzerland will be a good test for his team ahead of the World Cup opening match against Portugal.

Ghana will play Switzerland at the Zayad Sports complex in Abu Dhabi today, Thursday, 17 November 2022.

‘’We still have a lot of work to do, surely, we analyzed Switzerland so we have to adapt to their style. Because depending on their system there are different positions we have to take and different gaps we have to use. And also, defensively it’s a bit of a different approach so this sometimes demands different players but we are very prepared, and I think in all it’s a very good preparation for Portugal.

Everybody is ready, everybody is hungry, we are looking forward to the World Cup’.

‘’But surely, it’s also about positions, so the starting eleven is not 100% sure so everybody has a good chance to show himself again and to show us as technical staff that they are capable of playing international games and this is a good test’’.

‘’Like I said, the guys look sharp, they are ready. It’s a very, very good challenge for us to play Switzerland and this can also make impact for our decisions as to who will play against Portugal’’ he added.
