The Head Coach for the Black Stars, Otto Addo says the team’s game against Uruguay on Friday, December 2, 2022, will be a ‘normal’ match like any other game.
Otto Addo in an interview said he was personally not seeking revenge against the South Americans, La Celeste.
The final match in group H will kick off at the Al Janoub Stadium at exactly 15:00 GMT in Qatar.
The two teams have one final shot in the Round of 16 of the World Cup tournament. Ghana needs a win to take a spot in the next round of the tournament while Uruguay is desperately in need of a win against Ghana to progress to the next round.
“Yeah just like every other match, surely we want to win this game, the good thing is even if it’s a draw, I’m not really thinking about revenge, for me, it’s a normal game. For me I was also sad when I watched the scene, it was a big chance for Ghana to proceed to the next stage”.
“But It’s 12 years ago, now it’s a different match with a different approach. So, I don’t see it as revenge. I am not a person who is seeking for revenge and as a strong believer, if you don’t seek for revenge for these things, sometimes you get more blessings from God. We try to do our best to win this match and we are confident we can beat them”, Otto Addo added.
Meanwhile, La Celeste striker, Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz said his team will definitely beat the Black Stars after watching their porous defence in their previous matches.
“We have one point and the final match against Ghana is do and die. We have no option than to win to make our fans happy. We are going our lives and soul in this last match, Ghana is a good team but we know them. We have beaten them before and we know how to beat them again. We have watched their video clips and they have porous defence, we will utilise on that to beat them.” the La Celeste striker said.
