Nigeria’s inability to score in Kumasi in the first leg of their 2022 World Cup playoff could be the deciding factor in the return game tomorrow, according to Ghana coach Otto Addo.
In Abuja, the Super Eagles would be compelled to come out looking for goals, according to the former Black Stars winger, which will assist the Ghanaians attack as well.
This comes after they drew 0-0 in Kumasi on Friday night, with both teams missing decent scoring chances owing to the agility of Nigerian goalkeeper Francis Uzoho and Ghanaian shot-stopper Jojo Wollacott.
Even though Ghana failed to score in the home game, coach Addo was pleased with his players’ performance.
“I think the boys did well, but given the circumstances, I can say that they stayed to the plan, even though we made some blunders.” In the post-match press conference, Addo said, “We had nice positions and good runs.”
“The Nigerians noticed that we can play as well as they can.” “I think we matched them up, even though the AFCON wasn’t great,” Ghana’s coach stated. “They have good players, but it was a tie overall.” At home, the burden will be on them, and no away goals can be devastating.”
The second leg will be held at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
