Ghana Ghana’s Chris Hughton takes responsibility after USA mauling

Ghana coach Chris Hughton has apologised after his side’s defeat against the United States of America (USA).

The Black Stars at the Geodis Stadium, Nashville suffered a 4-0 defeat against the US Men’s national team in the final game in the international friendly games for October on Wednesday night. In a post-match conference, the 64-year-old apologised for the outcome of the game. “I apologise for the performance and the results,” said Hughton.

Quizzed in a post-match conference if he is the right person to coach the team, the former Norwich and Middlesbrough gaffer said he remains the right person to lead the team despite the poor results. “If you ask me if I feel like I’m the right person for this job, the answer is yes,” added Hughton.

In Wednesday’s game, the USA took the in the 10th minute through Giovanni Reyna who pounced on a poor clearance before Christian Pulisic added the second from the spot following a Gideon Mensah penalty.

Florian Balogun was then gifted the third for the USA following another series of poor defending in the 22nd minute. Ghana went down by four in the 39th minute through a well-worked indirect free kick that was converted by Reyna for his brace.
