The Black Stars suffered a defeat for the first time under Chris Hughton as they fell to Mexico in an international friendly far away in United States
Ghana suffered a 2-0 defeat in the hands of Mexico in an international friendly at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte United States of America on Sunday morning.
The Black Stars were missing the services of captain Andre Ayew, Tariq Lamptey a couple of players due to personal reasons and injuries but had Thomas Teye Partey, Kudus Mohammed and Jordan Ayew in the squad.
Two second half goals from Hirving Lozano and Uriel Antuna were enough to hand Mexico a well deserving victory over the Black Stars as Chris Hughton finally suffered his first defeat after taking over from Otto Addo.
However, a major concern after the game was goalkeeper Lawrence Ati-Zigi who many Ghanaians believe his performance was below standard and should improve.
Many football lovers and pundits have reiterated that the goals Ati-Zigi conceded and how he set up his defence in the game against Mexico were questionable.
Ghana will face United States in another friendly game on Wednesday as they continue to prepare for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cote d’Ivoire next year.
