Head coach of Eleven Wonders Football Club – Ignatius Osei-Fosu has said that his tactical switches, especially in the second stanza was the killer punch that helped the Techiman based club to beat Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.
Addressing the media at the post match conference, the highly tactical Osei-Fosu explained how he was able to unlock coach Annor Walker’s tactical web:
“I think it was a very good game. On the balance of play, we [Eleven Wonders] had the first half whiles they also [Olympics] had the second half up until the 80th minute, but I think we wanted the win more so we had to do tactical switches.
“At a point we had to go from a 4-3-3 formation to a 4-4-2, and then to a 4-2-4 just to have more men forward [advance positions] for us to score and that gave them the opportunity to control the midfield, but with zeal and resilience we were able to come out unscratched.”
Clement Boahen’s 85th minute strike was all, but enough for Eleven Wonders to make it double over Great Olympics in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League having won 1-0 at the Nana Ameyaw Park against the ‘Dade Boys’ in the first round of the competition.
On how massive the win over Great Olympics is to the course of the Techiman based side, coach Osei-Fosu admitted that it is a very important one while admitting that Eleven Wonders [39 points] now have their destiny in their own hands:
“Our destiny is in our hands win our last home game and we will be on 42 points and we’ll escape relegation. That’s the most important.
“On the balance of play, any team could have won with a huge margins, but again because of good defensive play from both teams I think it’s a fair result.”
