Ghana's performance against Kenya shocking, disapp


Their performance was not only shocking but bewildering. First the players must respect their jerseys, that is, they are in charge of Ghana's hopes and aspirations. There is a tradition that Ghana does not lose to minnows like Kenya. Second the coach should have mapped out a strategy for the players. They were just playing like a practice match without any seriousness attach to it. Third, when they were playing 11 against 10 players, they should have piled on the pressure on the Kenyans to score the needed goal. Fourthly, I dont know who taught them that back passing game. If you watch the European teams, they only do back passing if the front is conjested and they want to trick their opponents. Ghana does not play that backwards game. Finally, the coach and the players forgot that 70% of all goals scored are due to errors committed by defenders or goalkeepers. If you don't try the goal, you can't score any goal.
