Head Coach of the Black Stars Otto Addo has advised Sporting Lisbon winger Abdul Fatawu Issahaku to be more patient and precise with his shooting.

Abdul Fatawu Issahaku was in action for Ghana in their 1-0 victory against Nicaragua in an International friendly game in Lorca, Spain on Tuesday.

The youngster scored the only goal of the game in the 35th minute, curling a shot from the edge of the box pass the goalkeeper.

Speaking to the media after the game, Head Coach Otto described Fatawu as good winger with a powerful shot but added that he needs to be patient and precise with his shooting.

“He’s a very good winger. He has a powerful shot. Sometimes he needs more patience with the shot and to be more precise instead of hammering it all out.

“This is what I told him; he should feel free, make runs behind the lines, go one-against-one, and when there is a chance, he should use his left foot very gently.

“If he uses it gently, it’s even enough just to be precise and score the goal.”

Fatawu’s goal against Nicaragua was his first for the Black Stars in 9 appearances. Reacting to the goal, the Sporting Lisbon winger said:

“I am very happy to have my first national team goal, this is just the beginning we are hoping to give our best for the nation,” Issahaku told Max TV.

Fatawu went on to say that Ghana were unlucky not to convert their chances against Nicaragua and added that the focus is now on the World Cup.

“We were on top and it was not that tough but we couldn’t convert the chances,” he said.

“Now the focus is just on my club to go and prepare more to be fit for the national team, for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar,” the youngster added.
