Nigeria Vs Ghana FT! | HIGHLIGHTS
Nigeria Vs Ghana World Cup Qualifiers second leg encounter Live coverage from Abuja National Stadium.
This encounter is the decider of who will be making it through to the FIFA World Cup which will be going down in Qatar this year as one amongst five representatives coming from the African continent after this big rivalry expected to happen here tonight.
The first leg of the match which was played in Kumasi wasn’t that impressive as nothing was seen coming from both Nations who created well enough opportunities to make sure something happens going forward which didn’t go as planned despite all that they did in the encounter.
They are now looking to finish things off here in Abuja which won’t be an easy one knowing how much the Super Eagles are planning to do as they don’t have any plans of seeing things go to their opponent who also have the same mindset of winning here by any means possible as we await kickoff.
It won’t be an easy game for either of the Nations in this Nigeria Vs Ghana second leg qualifiers match for the FIFA World Cup which is expected to go down in Qatar later in the year which will be seeing five representatives from Africa making the group stages of the biggest football tournament on the planet.
NIGERIA STARTING LINEUP
Francis Uzoho (Goalkeeper); Ola Aina, William Troost Ekong, Calvin Bassey (Defenders); Oghenekaro Etebo, Joe Aribo, Frank Oyeka (Midfielders); Dennis Emmanuel, Victor Osimhen, Ademola Lookman (Strikers).
GHANA STARTING LINEUP
Walcott (Goalkeeper); Odoi, Daniel Amartey, Djiku, Mensah (Defenders); Baba, Thomas Partey (Midfielders); Ishaku, Kudus, Jordan Ayew (Attackers); Afena Gyan (Striker).
So much will be happening here as both coaches already dished out their starting lineup which isn’t much of a difference from how they lined up against each other in the first leg of the encounter which ended in a goalless affair back in Kumasi after an evenly balanced 90 minutes of football.
The biggest of them all as today will be the final decider as to all African Nations who are going to make the group stages with every game being decided tonight as we will be seeing 5 matches played with two going on the same time as the other and everything will be concluded today to know who progresses.
Nigeria Vs Ghana has been hitting up since the kickoff of the first leg which saw them playing a goalless draw in a game that had so much drama attached to it off and on the pitch, but despite it all, both of them couldn’t make anything happen as they had to settle for the result which in one way or the other favors them each.
The first leg encounter was intense between them as they equally forced each other goalkeepers onto making an incredible save, but the biggest talking point was the penalty which VAR ruled out which could have been the match decider in Kumasi as a Ghanaian defender was forced into handling the ball inside his box.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be for the Super Eagles who carried on with the game and also were forced to make changes that the coach didn’t plan on doing as some of the players kept getting injured and removed from the clash which put doubts on few players before kickoff of this encounter.
