‘We Can’t Afford to Relax’ – Otto Addo warns ahead of Central African Republic match


Ghana’s coach, Otto Addo, is issuing a stern warning to his players as they gear up for their crucial encounter against the Central African Republic in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.


Scheduled for Monday, June 10, at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, this highly anticipated match marks a pivotal moment for Ghana, currently positioned in third place in Group I, trailing behind Madagascar and Comoros.


Despite their recent triumph over Mali with a score of 2-1, securing six points from three games, Addo emphasizes the need for unwavering focus and intensity.


This sentiment is echoed by Mohammed Kudus, who acknowledges the formidable challenge posed by the Central African Republic.


Addressing the press on Sunday, Kudus emphasized, “One thing is for sure, it’s going to be a difficult game. We hope for an easy win, but we must not underestimate our opponents.”


Addo reinforces this stance, asserting, “We can’t afford to relax now.”


As the former Borussia Dortmund coach, Addo is resolute in his mission to guide Ghana to their fifth FIFA World Cup appearance, having previously achieved qualification for the 2022 tournament in Qatar under his leadership.


Set to kick off at 19:00 GMT, Ghana is poised to assert their dominance and secure their spot in the FIFA World Cup once again, with Addo’s leadership instilling confidence in the team as they prepare to confront the challenges ahead.
