Former Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim Sannie Daara has revealed that Otto Addo was the brain behind Ghana’s epic 2-2 draw against Germany at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“One thing Ghanaians don’t know is that Ghana’s biggest result at the 2014 World Cup was against Germany and you will remember that Germany beat every country including Brazil with more than 7 goals. Ghana was able to hold Germany,” he said.

“The tactics used by Ghana’s head coach Kwesi Appiah were prepared by Otto Addo who was then Scout for the team against Germany. He gave a concise report that helped Kwesi Appiah to pull off this massive feat”

Sannie Daara went on to add that Otto Addo should be given the chance to lead Ghana for the playoff of the 2022 FIFA World Cup against Nigeria in March because he knows the players.
