The final leg encounter will be the 59th clash at senior level between both West African giants in a chequered 71 –year rivalry, and will also be the first game involving the Super Eagles at the country’s premium sporting arena since the Eagles defeated Sudan’s Falcons of Jediane 3-1 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match on 15th October 2014.

Nigeria reached the play-off round after topping a qualifying pool that included Cape Verde, Liberia and the Central African Republic while Ghana emerged from the section that had South Africa, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia.

    If Ighalo, Amoo, Onuachu and Osimhen are picked, Ghana will fall. Home & away. May l add, No Okoye basket, of course. Adeleye or Uzoho should be in goal.

      You highlighted the bad side of Okoye but you did not see the bad side of Ighalo since he has been playing for Nigeria ęnh Oga Edoman?

      Fear God o Oga Edoman if truly you love your country Nigeria, it is not about Ighalo but Nigeria.

      Remember that he wasted a slot intentionally during the Afcon in Cameroon. You can see the difference between Ighalo, Balogun and Shehu.

      Awaziem did not kick the ball in Cameroon, Ighalo wasted a slot deliberately because if coach Eguavoen and the gaffer did a shabby work by ignoring Dessers for no reason and opted for Ighalo/other strikers and Super paid dearly for that against Tunisia.

      We can not continue this way my lovely friend Edoman. Let’s be sincere with ourselves. Let the best represent Nigeria.

      Super need a striker who can take chances coming his way. Osimhen and Dessers are in this category.

      No disrespect to Ighalo, Dessers and Osimhen will get the job done against Ghana.

      Out of five chances, Ighalo can only manage to convert one. Is that the kind of striker you are expecting to see against Ghana? Remember that an away match is very crucial and Super Eagles must do whatever it takes to win the first leg in Ghana if Nigeria have to qualify to the next world cup in Qatar.

      I do not hate Ighalo, personally, i love him so much but he should do himself a favor, his time is up in the Super Eagles and he should not come back period. Do have a blessed day my lovely friend, Edoman. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • We need tested and tried players.
    We need Etebo and Ndidi in the MD, we need to play 3-5-2 in Ghana and 4-4-2 in Abuja.
    We need Osime and Onuachu in the front.
    We need Victor Moses if we can get him.

    Uzoho should start in goal..
