Head coach of the Black Stars Chris Hughton pointed out his team conceded two dreadful defensive goals against Mexico in their international friendly played at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Sunday morning.
Following the 2-0 defeat against the North Americans, the former Brighton and Hove Albion manager suffered his first defeat as Ghana manager in six games.
Hughton acknowledged in his post-match press conference that their late push for a comeback was going to be impossible.
“The balance is if you don’t cope well enough in that period then at least you’ve got to be secure enough and not give away goals,” he said.
“I thought both the goals that we conceded, I think from our point of view were two poor defensive goals.”
“Then it became an uphill battle and I think we rallied around a little bit and I think in that final period of the game, you know, I saw good effort from the players in trying to get back into the game.
“I think it was it from that stage it was going to be very difficult.”
Ghana would be hoping for a good reaction when they face the United States of America on Wednesday.
