2026 World Cup qualifiers: Supporters made it possible for Black Stars to beat Central African Republic – Otto Addo

Back Stars head coach Otto Addo has credited the Kumasi crowd for his team’s comeback win over the Central African Republic in Monday’s 2026 World Cup qualifier.

Trailing 2-1 at halftime, Ghana rallied to win 4-3 in a dramatic match at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday (10 June).

This victory followed another impressive turnaround just four days earlier when the Black Stars overcame a 1-0 deficit at halftime to beat Mali 2-1 in Bamako on Thursday (6 June).

Speaking after the game, Otto Addo was full of praise for the raucous atmosphere the crowd created despite the team induring difficult periods in the game.

“The positive spirit. Despite being behind, away in Mali and now here again to come back from difficult situations that need to be mentioned.

“Also, the supporters because they stayed behind us and kept supporting and made it possible for us to come back.”

Ghana is currently top of Group I with nine points from four games and has gotten their World Cup qualifying hopes back on track.
