After the defeat against Portugal, Ghanaian Sporting winger Fattaw said Ghana had played a “good match”.
The 18-year-old footballer, who was an unused substitute against Portugal, spoke about his career at Sporting. “Everything is working out, little by little. I’m getting better and better little by little,” he said, before touching on the importance of Lions being in the Ghana squad: “Sporting have allowed me to be here. They’ve done a lot for me.”
After the World Cup, Fatau is hoping for more playing opportunities, refusing to say in which position he likes to play more: “All players want to add minutes. It’s up to the coach.” [Rúben Amorim]🇧🇷 The master knows where I like to play the most, but I play where I have to play. It’s up to the coach to make that decision.”
The young player was asked about Cristiano Ronaldo, Ghana’s opponent tonight and the face who gave the sports academy its name: “He played very well today. He is a football legend.”
Regarding the penalty kick against the Portuguese striker, who scored the first goal for the national team, he said: “The referee has made his decision. I have nothing to say.”
The winger also spoke about the state of mind in the Ghanaian team’s locker room after the defeat against Portugal: “The coach has given us motivation for the next games. We have to get up. We will work even harder to beat South Korea.”
