Black Stars head coach, Otto Addo, has confirmed he and his backroom staff have had useful discussions about how to defend set pieces.

Two of the three goals Ghana conceded against Brazil came from set pieces, with the Black Stars choosing to defend with the zonal marking system to very little effect.

Ahead of a friendly encounter with Nicaragua on Tuesday, Addo said the team has been training set pieces in the hope of avoiding goals like the ones conceded against Brazil.

“We had some useful discussions about set pieces. Yesterday, we trained them again and we hope that we improve in that and don’t concede anymore goals like that.”

Ghana vs Nicaragua kicks off at 18:00GMT.
