Ghana Black Stars sneak into 2022 World Cup after 1-1 tie with Super Eagles in Abuja

(NNP) The Black Stars of Ghana sneaked into the 2022 Qatar World Cup after holding Nigeria to a 1-1 tie in Abuja in the second leg. The first leg ended in goalless tie in Kumasi on March 25. The Black Stars bagged the ticket on away goal advantage having scored the first goal early in the first half with a volley outside the box that beat Cyprus-based keeper Francis Uzoho. Super Eagles equalized on a Ekong-Trong penalty after England-based Ademola Lookman was fouled in the box. Ekong-Trong neatly taken penalty beat keeper Wallacot who was sent the wrong way.

With possession and momentum in their favour and playing before a capacity crowd of 60,000 at the newly renovated MKO Abiola Stadium, the Super Eagles looked disinterested, dribbling instead of pushing the ball forward and losing possession too often by holding on too long to the ball. They initiated lousy passes and long-winded crosses that overshot frustrated attackers.  The late introduction of Odion Ighalo and Ahmed Musa proved futile as the Black Stars employing all manner of tactics, including delay tactics that earned goalkeeper Wallacot a yellow card, held on until the final whistle, effectively throwing 200 million plus Nigerians into mourning.
