Black stars head coach, Otto Addo, says he is not worried about growing pressure to win games with the national team.

Addo has won just 1 of his 7 games in charge of the national team, leading them to the 2022 World Cup against Nigeria in his first two games.

Both games ended in a draw as Ghana sealed qualification to the quadrennial mundial.

Since then, Ghana has only managed to beat Madagascar, a 3-0 win in Cape Coast in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The run has included 2 defeats to Japan (4-1) and Brazil (3-0), and draws against Central African Republic (1-1) and Chile (0-0).

Ghana face Nicaragua in Spain on Tuesday evening in another international friendly ahead of November’s World Cup in Qatar.

Asked if the Nicaragua game is a must-win for his team, Addo said: “We are using these matches to try a lot of things, not only on the players but also for my side on systems, so we have to find that together. This is very important for us as a team.

“We have new players in each position we need to integrate and a whole a lot of things and we also want to use these games for everyone to show themselves at the training and also in the games and I am not worried.

“We have to take the right conclusions out of every match and prepare ourselves for the World Cup.”

Kick off for Ghana vs Nicaragua is 18:00GMT.
