Ghanaian born in Hamburg, Coach Otto Addo has said that his team Black Stars is aiming for a victory against Uruguay, despite the fact that a draw might be enough to advance to the next round of the FIFA World Cup.
Black Stars Ghana will face the the South Americans team in their last Group H match at the Al Janoub Stadium on Friday, December 2.
Ghana moved to second place with three points after defeating South Korea on Monday, two points ahead of both South Korea and Uruguay. Ghana must draw to advance, whereas the two-time world champions must win.
However, Otto Addo speaking at press conference today together with Technical team said he is keen on victory for the Black Stars rather than playing for a draw. In his words below :
“The good thing is that at the end, if it’s a draw it is also good for us but we want to win this game,” he told the GFA Media.
“I’m not thinking too much about revenge because, for me, it’s just a normal game. Surely, I was really sad when I watched the scene in 2010.
“It was a big chance for Ghana to proceed to the next stage but it happened 12 years ago.”
The much-anticipated game in Group H has been scheduled to kick off at 15:00GMT.
