The first part of the recovery training after Tuesday’s international build up match against Togo mainly focused on possession and quickly regaining it from the opponent once lost before it switched to the utilisation of wing play and crossing of balls into the penalty area.

‘We have no time to dwell on the result of the game we played against Togo because our focus has always been on the qualifier against Ghana on October 7th. The Togo game simply helped us identify areas we need to improve and polish some others to help us get a very good result in Tamale.’ Micho said  after the training session that lasted close to two hours.
