Tactical analysis: Appiah prioritizes tactics and roles over win against South Korea

This is the final game before it gets serious. Not that this is not, as it gives every shred of plan an intense scrutiny, every tactic a final mock examination, every player the final opportunity of a mistake and the managers a moment to sort and classify their doubts.

The Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah will be looking at the final friendly game against South Korea before the FIFA World Cup tournament from a different angle. The former Black Stars player will not concentrate much on the final results as he seeks to monitor the roles assigned to players and some tactical analysis.

Kwesi Appiah told reporters ahead the game against South Korea in Miami:

‘Friendly games are good to help you prepare. Psychologically, it’s good to win to boost your confidence levels.

‘On the other side, I am looking at tactically how we will play, and the individual roles assigned to the players.

‘Scorelines are always good, but most of the times it depends on the team that you put up. For instance if that is your best team, then you think they should give you results.

‘But if it is a team you are trying to assess, then you look at it from a different angle.’ 

The next game after South Korea for the Black Stars will be their 2014 FIFA World Cup opening game against the United States of America, before taking on Germany and Portugal in Group G.
