Nigeria vs Ghana: Okocha rates Super Eagles’ chances of qualifying for World Cup after 0-0 draw

 


Former Nigeria captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha believes the Super Eagles of Nigeria now have a better chance of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar after their 0-0 draw against Ghana on Friday.

DAILY POST reports that Nigeria played a goalless draw against the Black Stars at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi, in a 2022 World Cup qualifying playoffs first-leg tie on Friday.

Nigeria will now host Ghana in the second leg fixture at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja, on Tuesday.

But Okocha believes credit should be given to the Super Eagles for their impressive display against Ghana.

“We could not separate both teams because nobody wanted to lose the game.

“We must give credit to the players considering the fact that they have given themselves a good chance of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup,” Okocha said on Supersports.
