2022 WCQ: Cape Coast Pitch In Poor State Ahead Ghana Vs Nigeria

The pitch at the Cape Coast stadium is in a terrible state just two weeks before the 2022 World Cup qualifying play-offs between the Black Stars of Ghana and the Super Eagles of Nigeria, ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The Cape Coast pitch has been left in a bad shape after it was pounded with Independence Day activities on Sunday.

Military and police horses hit the ground for several hours during the parade to celebrate Ghana’s 65th Independence.

The grass, that was approved by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), has suffered severe damage and the surface look brown, making it unplayable.

And according to ghanasoccernet.com, this has sparked fears that the game could be relocated to another venue

Earlier, Ghana proposed the game be played in either Accra or Kumasi but the decision was rejected by FIFA and CAF.

The Black Stars played all home games in the group stages of the qualification in Cape Coast.

  • The first leg must be relocated to another country with good stadium.

    common sense should tell the Ghanaians not to mess up the stadium after FIFA and CAF approval.

  • If Ghana persists with all this fear-induced sports politics to force the game back to Kumasi, CAF should not hesitate to throw them out. Can’t forget the fakest box 18 injury in the history of football by Amartey the other day. Always trying to win by hook or crook

      The game will be played in Kumasi. That is what the fans asked for right from the beginning. The circumstances are begining to point in the right direction for us.

      As for being thrown out, that will not happen though I know that is your wish.

      I came here this morning knowing that there will be an article about Ghana as usual and I was right. By the way, that photo of a very muddy pitch was not taken in Ghana. It is fake. I will direct my friends to this site so they can see what Nigerians are up to.

      • Owusu 2 years ago

        We wil do everything in our power to win .

      • @Yeboah, what your fans want in terms of venue, it is what CAF approves. You can follow the backyard or resort to dirty games to armtwist or railroad CAF to do your bidding on a venue initially rejected.

        Your loss has already started before 25th with all these panic politics. Last last, as @Greenturf said below, CAF will move it to Cameroun which was Ghana’s most recent haunting ground.

        I said “throw out” cos I was angry about these little mind games. The whole world saw the daylight robbery Amartey anchored last time. I am very confident Nigeria will get 6 complete points. This Ghana I’m seeing? With this Nigerian team? Lol. Forget it. Your Dede is not even playing – further depletion.

        U rather hateful!! It shows from ur incoherent rant!! Nigeria wee is one helluva of a stimulant

      • Godwin 2 years ago

        This news was firstly reported by ghanasoccernet.com. you have got to blame them for the ‘false picture’.
        FYI, Accra and Kumasi stadia can’t host the match. The next alternative to Cape Coast stadium is outside Ghana.

        We can choose to disagree and still be civil.

  • Ako AMADI 2 years ago

    Why are bad football pitches found only in West Africa where the rainfall is highest on the continent?

  • Greenturf 2 years ago

    The first leg should be moved to Cameroon i think that’s fair for both parties,because i do not see the two countries parading largely Europe based players trading tackles in this shabby pitch.

    • Selfmade 2 years ago

      We ll push it to ur fathers bedroom and we ll still bleep ur Nigeria there lol!! Nigeria is our wives and they’ll open leg when Ghana is around

  • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

    Ghana’s economy is on a critical state like most of the corrupt West African countries, even the IMF asked their leaders to confess to its citizens, instead their leaders are always feeding them with false informations making them think highly of themselves in same bracket as Nigeria lol. The state of their present pitch is as a result of negligence due to an ongoing dispute and refusal of their country minority party to pass a fraudulent budget that taxes every individual mobile account per transactions they do which exceeds #10,000. I just gave you guys another reason why them country is not smiling today. I lived and conquered that hell for years where I attended college before moving unto greener pastures, and I can tell you guys they’re not wives with Nigeria as we always think back home, instead they find joy when Nigeria losses and never loves to witness our progress. Only 1 percent of true Christian Ghanaians will genuinely Love a Nigerian aside the marriage connection. If they aren’t married to you just mind your business else they’ll make sure they bring your success down.

    • Selfmade 2 years ago

      Nigeria is big for nothing!!

    • @Chima, I think I understand the psychological “weed” behind Ghana’s hysteria when playing Nigeria. For context, visualize Iran playing USA. They don’t like America but feel dwarfed by them. So any other chance they get, they’re ready to spill blood, roll in the mud and do all dirty tricks to gain one over the US. For them – just like Ghana – that is football. Just check the rabid venting of this @unselfmade boy!

      Economically, geographically, population, military, art, music, sports, Olympic – they can’t be mentioned in the same breathe as Nigeria.

      Unfortunately for them, they cannot even be mentioned any longer with Nigeria when it comes to football. We are number 3 in Africa, they’re number 20 or so. No mates.

      What else do they like to clutch at for boasting? Light? They’re 20 million people. We are 200 million and we supply Niger, Togo, Benin etc light. If we were 20 million people, we would be having light 25 hours a day. Lol.

      Then they talk independence, forgetting Nigeria was like 4 countries in one. 3 regions got independence in 1956 – before smallie Ghana did in 1957.

      Even the football they talk about, none of this one’s mouthing here were born in 1982, when only 3 to 8 countries play. So technically, Ghana has never won Afcon (in the modern era).

        U sound completely retarded like ur incoherent garbage lol!! U have an iq comparable to a caged sheep

  • Godwin 2 years ago

    Complete sports, don’t you think you need to moderate comments here?

    I might be wrong, and I want to be. But one day, the xenophobic tendencies in these people would cause war in West Africa.

  • pablo 2 years ago

    I am a Nigerian, and this is my opinion.
    Ghanaians are good people. They have bad people too. But which country doesn’t?
    It is Nigeria that started the problem with them, with the disgraceful GHANA MUST GO episode!
    That is the shameful truth. That is also why most Ghanaians hate Nigerians. Because of what we did to them in that period. How we made them suffer.
    We owe them an apology for the way we mistreated them.

    • Godwin 2 years ago

      You seem to be historically myopic. Go and read the history.
      Secondly, if some people become nuisance to your system, there is nothing wrong in asking them to leave.

      BTW, we are here to discuss football.

      • Godwin 2 years ago

        What is the truth?
        Have you even asked why Nigeria sent them away, even if that is the starting point of your argument?

    • SE Supporter 2 years ago

      Get your history right dude. Ghana first expelled Nigerians in the late 50s/early 60s.

      • pablo 2 years ago

        Ehen now. So Nigeria is justified in doing the Ghana must go thing?
        2 wrongs now make a right?

    • Olusegun.B. 2 years ago

      Pablo I’m glad you brought up the Ghana Must Go Episode .Let
      me refresh your memory abit. Had Ghana not been terrible and unpleasant to Nigeria in the 50/60s and had there not been so much robbery occurrence, Ghana must go would never have happened. Ghana were the ones who started Calling super Eagles super Chickens and now there’s shatta wale.
      I believe that there are good people in ghanà but these senseless attacks against Nigeria need to stop.

      This game is supposed to be handled with a level of dignity and not with this kind of act.

      They better put the stadium in order or else FIFA añd CAF better consider a neutral ground

  • Caf to check the field again this week. Probably move the game to a better stadium outside the country.

  • Mizzle 2 years ago

    Football has turned into politics… U guys are mad and crazy. Talk football and stop the politics. Both countries are suffering due to bad leadership and corruption among the leaders. Let’s enjoy our football in peace without involving stupid political activities here.
    WE are all Africans
