Nigeria vs Ghana: Why Super Eagles may not qualify for 2022 World Cup in Qatar


Nigeria host Ghana in the second leg of their 2022 World Cup playoff on Tuesday, knowing only a win can ensure they grab one of the five tickets to represent the continent in Qatar.

The Super Eagles failed to score in Kumasi last Friday, hence they have no goal advantage ahead of today’s match.

Away goals are still in force in the Africa qualifying series.

If Nigeria had scored at the Baba Yara Stadium, they would have been in a better position to finish the job on home soil.

However, the tie is nicely balanced on a knife-edge now.

If Ghana win at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja, they will qualify.

If the Black Stars even manage a score draw (1-1, 2-2, 3-3), they will still qualify.

But if the game ends 0-0 again, the game will go into extra time and possibly penalties to decide the winner.
