Black Stars coach, Otto Addo, has disclosed Ghana will not be seeking to avenge the 2010 World Cup heart-breaking loss against Uruguay when the two teams meet again on Friday.
Ghana will play the South Americans in their 2022 World Cup Group H final game at Al Janoub Stadium in an encounter that has a lot at stake.
Depending on what happens in the other group game between Portugal and South Korea, a draw could be enough to see Ghana sail through to the last 16 at the expense of Uruguay.
While many Ghanaians are fixated on paying back Uruguay and Suarez for that painful defeat in South Africa, Otto Addo says forgiving comes with enormous blessings from God.
“The good thing is that, in the end, a draw could also be good for us, but we want to win this game. I’m not too much thinking about revenge. It’s for me a normal game,” he told the GFA media.
“Surely, I also was really, really sad in 2010 when I watched the scenes and yeah it was a big chance for Ghana to proceed to the next stage but it’s yeah 12 years ago and now it’s different.
“It’s a different match, different approach. Also, for me, it’s not revenge and I’m not a person who’s seeking revenge.
“I’m a strong believer that, if you don’t seek revenge, sometimes you even get more blessings from God.
“We will try to do our best to win this match and I think we’re confident enough to know that we can beat them.”
The Black Stars are second in Group H with three points from their first two group games and need all their might at work on Friday against Uruguay to secure qualification to the last 16.
