Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association(GFA) Dr. Randy Abbey has expressed confidence in the Black Stars beating sworn rivals Nigeria to book the sole ticket for the 2022 FIFA world cup in Qatar.
The Black Stars were held to a pulsating scoreless drawn game by the Super Eagles at the Baba Yara sports stadium last Friday. The Ghanaians failed to take the enthusiastic support from the Kumasi fans to their advantage, having dominated in large spells of the game.
The Super Eagles, who had 100 per cent record in the stages of the just the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations were outclassed by Otto Addo’s lads in almost every sphere of the match but profligacy and inexperience from Ghanaians’ attack meant the Nigerians would leave the shores of the country with a point.
In an interview on Kumasi based Akoma fm monitored by A1 sports, Dr. Abbey who doubles as the bankroller of division one side Hearts of Lions said the senior national team has what it takes to beat Nigeria in Abuja and quality for the global showpiece.
“It was a very good game, we were unlucky not to have won the game, but there’s another opportunity on Tuesday, so we will go out there, kill ourselves and get the job done. Absolutely, Ghana is qualifying ahead of Nigeria,” Dr. Abbey stated.
The Black Stars take on the Super Eagles on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 in Abuja, with either side having a chance of qualifying. Ghana is chasing a fourth appearance at the world cup while Nigeria is seeking to qualify for the seventh time in their history.
