Coach Otoo Addo has been highly commended for his tactical selection for the game. He caused a stir online when he released his squad for the Black Stars without the team's captain, Andre Ayew.

His decision to exclude the captain's brother, Jordan Ayew, from the team's preparations for Mali sparked many mixed reactions online.

Later in the game, however, Jordan played, and this seemed to be a great selection as it led to the team's victory.
