Black Stars’ coach defends his job after US defeat  

Story: BBC

Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton, has insisted that he is the right man for the Black Stars coaching job after the USA lesson on Wednesday.

Ghana was humiliated in a 4-0 demolition at the Geodis Park in Nashville, Tennessee in an international friendly.

That meant Chris Hughton has lost back-to-back games following the 2-0 defeat to Mexico earlier on Sunday.

Speaking at the press conference after the USA loss, Hughton said, “If you ask me if I feel like I’m the right person for this job, the answer is yes”.

The US took the lead in the 10th minute through Giovanni Reyna who picked 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.
