Former Ghanaian international, Joetex Asamoah Frimpong has expressed worry about the performance of the senior national soccer team, the Black Stars ahead of the upcoming AFCON.
The Black Stars commenced their World Cup 2022 qualifiers a week ago, securing a hard-fought win against Madagascar before losing 1-0 to Comoros.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Mothers FM, the former FC Zurich forward said:
“When you check our players and their performance against Madagascar and Comoros, it is very unfortunate.
“Things changed for us after making some three changes against Madagascar. The same thing happened in Comoros. The players have to do more because they can do better. We can’t go anywhere if we continue like this.
“Coach Chris Hughton should change his tactics because I was very disappointed after their last game. You can use tactical discipline in defence against the likes of Nigeria, Tunisia or Morocco but using it against a team like Comoros or Madagascar means you are afraid to play the game. I don’t understand the coach,” he stated.
Looking ahead, the Black Stars are shifting their focus to the upcoming AFCON to be held in Ivory Coast.
Ghana will start their journey with Cape Verde on January 14, 2024 at the Felix Houphouet Stadium in Abidjan before taking on Egypt and Mozambique.
