Black Stars head coach Otto Addo has a tricky game on his palms as Ghanaians expect the gaffer to steer Ghana to a optimistic outcome against Portugal of their opening Group H game at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Otto Addo’s most used formations are 4-2-3-1 and 3-5-2. Among the 2 formations, 3-back seemly offers him the proper steadiness for his staff against powerful opponents.
Also, with the game being a gap fixture, he would need to set the tone proper and construct the arrogance of the staff by aiming for at least a point. Hence, he would set out his staff to be a bit extra defensive.
Ghana wouldn’t have extra of the ball and thus have to make good use of it the few time they might have it. This implies that fast passing to flip protection into assault could be Otto Addo’s technique for the game.
Therefore it seems to be possible Black Stars will begin the game in a 3-back system. However, with regard to Otto Addo’s selection of players for this technique and techniques, it is extremely unpredictable.
