Our main focus is to win against Portugal – Otto Addo

Ranked the bottom country at the worldwide showpiece, Ghana will start their journey against Portugal at the Stadium 974 on Thursday, November 24.

Despite not being considered the top two favourites within the group on paper, Addo says the goal for the crew is to advance into the knockout levels whereas including that successful against Portugal is the target.

“Surely we want to survive the group stage. We want to go game by game so our full focus is on the Portuguese game. If we don’t look too far and we concentrate on the next game, I think we can do something,” he said forward of Thursday’s fixture.

“From there, nobody knows, it depends on who you get and also how you play.

“It’s very difficult to predict so our main focus is to win against Portugal, which will be very difficult. After that, we’ll look at the next step.”

Ghana will be wanting to begin their campaign at the Mundial on a high after the disastrous 2021 Africa Cup of Nations that has brought about a variety of dissatisfaction for the crew.
