Ryan Bertrand applauds Ghana for friendlies with Mexico and USA

Former Chelsea full-back Ryan Bertrand has praised Ghana’s decision to play friendlies against the USA and Mexico, emphasizing that these matches provided different tests for the Black Stars.

He believes that facing national teams from these countries has been beneficial for Ghana’s preparations for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

In an interview with 3Sports, Bertrand expressed confidence that the Ghana national team will be ready to compete when the AFCON kicks off.

“Yeah, I think first of all football, international or domestic tournament football, anything can happen. So there’s some stage you are not in the best form and end up doing well. Sometimes you can be in great form and end up underachieving. I think the last two tests in USA and Mexico were good tests because they’re different, you know, different styles of football and different opposition.

“So I think they’re in great hands with Chris Hughton. I’m pretty sure by the time the tournament comes, they’ll be ready,” Ryan Bertrand said.

He acknowledged that in football, international or domestic, anything can happen, and team form can fluctuate. Therefore, the recent friendlies have offered valuable experiences and opportunities for improvement.

Bertrand also mentioned that the different styles of football and opposition presented by the USA and Mexico have been important for the Black Stars to adapt and fine-tune their strategies ahead of the tournament.

The Black Stars of Ghana will be one of the 24 teams competing at the 2023 AFCON in Ivory Coast.

Despite recent unimpressive performances, Bertrand believes that Ghana will be well-prepared for the tournament under the guidance of coach Chris Hughton.
