AFCON 2023: We need to be focused and avoid mistakes against Mozambique- Denis Odoi
Ghana defender Denis Odoi has cautioned his teammates against repeating mistakes when they face Mozambique at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Ghana face the bottom-placed side in Group B in their final game looking to keep their chances of advancing to the knockout stages alive.
Mistakes in the Black Stars’ opening two games have left them with just one point with one more group game left to play.
Miscommunication at the nack against Cape Verde led to a late collapse and a loss. At the same time, individual errors from Inaki Williams and Osman Bukari accounted for the team’s draw against Egypt.
Heading into the encounter with Mozambique, Odoi has warned the team to keep their head in the game at all times.
“If we lose, we do not lose as individuals, we win together and we lose together. I don’t think it is due to the pressure. At this level, you make certain mistakes,” the right-back said.
“In the upcoming game, we have to try and avoid the small mistakes and be very ready and focused throughout the game.”
Chris Hughton’s men are hopeful a win on Monday, January 22, will be enough to take them through to the last 16.
