Otto Addo, the coach of the Black Stars, has acknowledged making poor choices during the match against Brazil’s Selecao.
The Brazilians completely dominated the first 45 minutes as they defeated the Black Stars by a score of three goals.
He defended his starting lineup in the post-game press conference and emphasized that future selections will be made depending on performances.
My decision was not based on chance. It was a complicated decision. Although the line-up was good, we had to work harder to fill the gaps.
He emphasized, “I believe I made mistakes, I learned a great deal more about my players, and choosing the next 11 will rely on the performance in the next game.

Richarlison completed a flawless build-up by Brazil with a first-time curler into the bottom corner as the Selecao continued to dominate the game.
All three goals Ghana allowed were given up in the opening period, which was a terrible start.
By converting Neymar’s free kick from the edge of the box, the Tottenham player increased the lead and helped his team win the first half.
As Ghana started to display signs of a revitalized team in the second, Inaki Williams stabilized the group with the addition of Mohammed Salisu.
