‘Black Stars conceded two poor defensive goals against Mexico’ – Chris Hughton

Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton, said his team conceded two poor defensive goals against Mexico in Sunday dawn’s international friendly at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, USA.

The former Brighton and Hove Albion boss lost his first game as Ghana boss in six games following the 2-0 defeat to the North Americans.

Hughton admitted at his post-match interview that their late fight for a comeback was going to be difficult.

“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.”
