Benjamin Akakpo: Black Stars 2; Portugal 3 – My Take

Benjamin Akakpo: Black Stars 2; Portugal 3 – My Take

Baba Rahman is waste! I’ve by no means appreciated his model of play. He “singlehandedly” cost us 2 goals. No surprises Chelsea have had him on a loaning ping-pong.

With higher options, I ponder why he will get to play.

Maybe, as Otto Addo said regarding Joseph Paintsil, not solely he does these choices – so we did our ordinary biased issues – and there now we have the outcome!

Our lack of focus is a significant drawback.

Sloppy losses of the ball in important areas is one other main concern.

Our midfield is shambolic. If we don’t plug these holes, the South Koreans, for instance, who play very quick football, may minimize us to shreds!

Partey was MIA. I suppose we should always begin letting such players heat the bench and let those that truly present gall and switch up in large matches play.

Maybe that will make a distinction and make these “big players” realise you will be large at Arsenal – however if you happen to aren’t “big” in our “big matches,” you’re small and fungible!

Dede confirmed up. That proves why we’d like his experience and aggression – even when he’s now a little bit of an outdated man – football-speaking.

Otto Addo’s modifications, I really feel, have been a little bit unwell-timed.

The Portuguese wasted no time unsettling us proper after that.

Otto has plenty of work to do in that respect. Unfortunately for us, the World Cup is just not the stage for trial and error.

The positives? We’ve scored Africa’s first 2 goals at the match; we didn’t undergo a whitewashing – even whereas going through the world’s ninth greatest staff; and we saved face for Africa.

Would that Iñaki had netted that last-minute steal to cap all of it off! That would have been an actual sucker punch! We would have stolen Portugal’s thunder!

Alas! Wishes aren’t horses and beggars don’t trip! In the top, although, let’s face it: Portugal was the higher facet.

Our lack of correct preparation, an incisive mindset and poor selections on the pitch (both teaching employees and players) have been our undoing.

Let’s work for higher against Uruguay and South Korea.

God bless Ghana!
