Post-Game Issues – This is a weird game.
Army had complete control of the game. They tried to move and attack quickly in the last (early) area. But when they couldn’t penetrate. They seem to be missing out on the idea of doing it. and the ball speed is slower Even with creative players like Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes.
They lack quality and aggression in the final area. But credit has to be given to Ghana under Otto Addo in a 5-3-2 formation. Focusing on packing tight defensively, controlling space and chasing and pressing when Portuguese players enter their half – they did really well in the first half.
However, the turning point of the game came when Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty to give Portugal a 1-0 lead, forcing Ghana to focus more on attack. And the game has become more open since they conceded the first goal. And what happened in the second half was Both of them scored a total of 5 goals.
Maybe the five goals scored is not tactical. But it was caused by small mistakes and laxity in defense by both teams.
