GORAN ‘PLAVI’ STEVANOVIC’S first outing with the Black Stars has sent a clear signal that he means business. He was not joking when he said he was interested in attacking football. It was such a refreshing game to watch seeing Ghana’s play pick up slowly to an exciting crescendo with some sweet all-attack-all-defend football.
It was even more pleasing to watch as Plavi tried as many of his options on the bench as possible and how that these tactical experiments did not weaken the performance of the team. If this performance is an indication of how the Black Stars will perform, them Plavi is on his way to become a Black Stars coaching legend.
Congratulations to Plavi, Akwasi Appiah and the entire playing body for the victory. Today, we celebrate even though against a weaker opponent. A couple of competitive games, and the message Plavi hopes to send will sink properly. But until then, Ghanaians are happy with the turn out.
GHANA 4-1 TOGO
