Senegal And Morocco Qualification Motivate Me To Direct My Anger On Uruguay - Otto Addo
Otto Addo speaks on Ghana vs Uruguay after Senegal and Morocco qualification

Coach Otto Addo has said that, the qualification of Senegal and Morocco to the next stage of the FIFA World Cup has given him motivation to direct his anger on Uruguay as Ghana prepares to face the South Americans on Friday, December 2.

Senegal and Morocco finished second and first respectively in their groups and a win for Ghana will mean Africa will have 3 representatives in the last round of 16 of the tournament.

According to Otto Addo qualification for Ghana will mean 60 percent of Africa’s five representatives would have made it to the next phase of the tournament which will be phenomenal.

Ghana has shown in their two previous games that they can challenge with any team in the competition, despite scoring 5 and conceding 5 goals to Portugal and South Korea, respectively.

However,  Otto Addo speaking at the pre-match pres on Thursday, stated how excited he is for the African teams Senegal and Morocco for their advancement to the next stage of the competition.

“I’m happy to see our African brothers qualifying to the next stage of the tournament. We don’t have a lot of representation like the other continents like Europe which have about 15 representations; our number is five so our probability to qualify is low. We take motivation from that and I hope we can have about 3 countries into the next stage. “It won’t be easy but we know the importance of the match against Uruguay.” Otto Addo

When speaking about Ghana versus Uruguay match, Addo  said : “It would be tough, both physically and mentally but we have to be ready. I believe [Uruguay] don’t have a choice. They have to win, so I don’t think they have a choice to play more defensively.

“We expect them to press high, to try to force and dictate the game. They know that a draw is not good enough for them. Surely there is no option than to attack.

“believe it is also a chance for us because there will be gaps in their defence. We have to be strong. Surely, we have to use the gaps which they will automatically leave and try to score.

“It’s going to be tight and tough just like the other matches at the World Cup but I am very confident if the players are at the same level as the last two games we will win.”

The Ghana vs Uruguay match will start at 3 p.m. GMT, with big star like Suarez and wonder kid like Kudus Mohammed showcasing their talent on the pitch.
