Ghana suffer Montenegro defeat in pre- World Cup friendly



Black Stars suffered a 0-1 loss to Montenegro in an International friendly played on Wednesday night in the city of Podgorica.

Ghana started off in the worst possible way, conceding a penalty in the very first minute after defender David Addy impeded a player in the penalty box; striker Dejan Damjanovic expertly converted the only goal of the game sending keeper Adam Kwarasey the wrong way.

The Stars did very well to regroup quickly after the goal. They dominated the entire half but were poor in the final third of their opponents.

Christian Atsu looked rather promising down the right flank as he powered his way into the defence of Montenegro at every given opportunity, he was probably Ghana’s most impressive player in the first half. Strikers Majid Warris and Jordan Ayew failed to make great impact, mainly due to inadequate supply from the midfielders.

After recess Coach Kwesi Appiah introduced Asamoah Gyan, Albert Adomah, Kwadwo Asamoah, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Sulley Muntari and Samuel Inkoom changes which brought a bit of urgency into the attack of the Stars.

Ghana still looked dangerous on the attack creating a good number of chances to get themselves the equalizer but Montenegro stood resolute at the back.

It was a big work-out for Coach Kwesi Appiah and his charges, what they needed in terms of preparation ahead of the soccer mundial in June.
