Nigeria will be under pressure in return leg, says Ghana coach


Ghana’s interim head coach Otto Addo says he does not see Nigeria as favourites going into Tuesday’s second leg of their crunch World Cup play-off.

The first leg ended 0-0 on Friday in Kumasi, meaning a home win in Abuja would be enough to send the Super Eagles through to their seventh finals. Addo is confident that Ghana, who crashed out of this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, can still reach Qatar.

“The result doesn’t change anything. When we go there we want to win.” Even though our Africa Cup of Nations was not good this year, you saw we matched Nigeria in the first leg,” said the former Black Star.

“So I don’t see them as favourites, the pressure will be on them at home and away goals can hurt a lot.”
