2026 World Cup Qualifiers: 2021 AFCON defeat to Comoros is not relevant in today's clash - Chris Hughton

Cup of Nations 2026 World Cup Qualifiers: 2021 AFCON defeat to Comoros is not relevant in today's clash - Chris Hughton
TUE, 21 NOV 2023 LISTEN

Ghana head coach, Chris Hughton, says losing to Comoros at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is insignificant to the 2026 World Cup qualifier to be played today, Tuesday in Moroni.

The Black Stars suffered a 3-2 win against The Coelacanths as the four-time African champions exited the tournament without a win.

Speaking ahead of their second Group I game at the Moroni Stadium, Hughton stated that results in the past can’t decide games yet to be played.

“These games are in the past. We are only concerned about now. Nobody can decide on a performance or score line in the past,” he said.

“We have prepared ourselves the best way that we can. International football is always a short-term answer.

“We are here because we feel we can win the game. This is normal for any team. As regards any score line in the past, they are insignificant.”

The Black Stars in their opener last Friday scored a 95th-minute winner against Madagascar at the Baba Yara Stadium.
