AFCON 2023 Qualifiers: Chris Hughton pledges Black Stars’ fighting spirit ahead of Angola clash

Ghanaians have been promised by Black Stars coach Chris Hughton that his team will always put up a battle to win games.

In a press conference prior to their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Angola, Hughton said that while he cannot promise victory in every game, he is confident that his team will play well and strive for victories in every game.

“We know as a team, and as the players, we have the responsibility to return this and the supporters must enjoy what they see. I can never guarantee the results but mostly they will see a team that is giving everything to get the result,” said Hughton.


The former Premier League manager, who was hired as Ghana’s coach last month after agreeing to a 21-month deal, will sit out of the team’s crucial match against Angola on Thursday for the first time.

As they are currently tied for fourth place in the qualifiers with four points each, the upcoming match against Angola is important for both teams.

The two teams will square off once more on March 27 in Luanda, and winning both games would greatly increase either team’s odds of making it to Ivory Coast.
