We Defended Poorly Against Mexico – Chris Hughton<span class="wtr-time-wrap after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>

Following the 2-0 loss in the international friendly at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, Chris Hughton, the manager of the Black Stars, acknowledged that his team struggled to match the intensity displayed by the Mexican side.

The game marked the second friendly for the Black Stars, coming on the heels of their victory over Liberia at the Accra Sports Stadium. Chris Hughton had remained unbeaten in his first five games as Head Coach prior to this defeat.

The Mexican team, managed by Jaime Lozano, had previously registered two draws in matches against Australia and Uzbekistan. They fielded a formidable starting lineup that included notable players like Raul Jimenez from Fulham and former Napoli forward Hirving Lozano.

While the Black Stars had a promising start in the first half, they ultimately couldn’t sustain their momentum and intensity against the Mexican team.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Chris Hughton acknowledged his side came up against a very good Mexican side.
