Blame me for heavy defeat to Brazil – Otto Addo

Black Stars head coach Otto Addo has taken responsibility for Ghana’s 3 – 0 defeat to Brazil in an international friendly aimed at preparing the team for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

First half goals from Marquinhos and Richarlison, who struck twice handed the Selecao a comfortable victory.

On the basis of chances created Ghana was fortunate to have been down by only three goals at the end of the half as Rafinha missed from 4 yards out while Richarlison fluffed at a big chance that fell his way in the early minutes.

However, Otto Addo has admitted that he has some introspection to do following the drubbing.

“I will start with myself, maybe that’s what was wrong.

“I have to look at it again and question myself but also I will look at the boys.

“Its not like when we play badly its always on the boys so I am involved as well, he stated at the post game press conference.

The Black Stars will now turn their attention to their next assignment against Nicaragua in Spain on September 27.
