Black Stars coach, Otto Addo has admitted that his system against Brazil was not the best.

The West African country lost 3-0 to the Selecao and all goals came in the first half.

PSG skipper, Marquinhos broke the deadlock before Richarlison netted a brace before recess.

The Dortmund trainer opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation for a start against Brazil in the pre-World Cup friendly on Friday.

Cremonese forward started upfront despite Ghanaian football fans expecting to see new boy Inaki Williams in the lineup.

“I will start with myself because maybe the system was wrong. I have to look at it again and question myself first,” he admitted.

Two of Brazil’s goals came from set pieces and Addo asserts his players could have worked harder in defending them.

“The lineup was good but we have to work harder and we have to work especially on the set pieces and we have to work harder to close the lines. There were too many gaps between the lines.

“What I am very disappointed of was the set pieces and if we take this out, maybe we’ll be luckily 1-0 down into halftime.

“I know the mistakes we made. I don’t think the third goal was a foul so it’s not only me who is making mistakes,” he added.

Ghana will continue with their preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup with another friendly against Nicaragua on Tuesday.
