Ghana Coach Excited To Face Nigeria At AAG

Ghana U-23 coach, Malik Jabir is unperturbed by the prospect of coming up against Nigeria’s U23 Eagles in the football event of the All Africa Games scheduled for Congo Brazzaville in September.

The Meteors who are the defending champions were handed a tough Group B also comprising Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal.

But it is the well anticipated fixture against eternal rivals, Nigeria that has generated huge discussions in both countries.

And Jabir, a former Ghana international who once handled Nigerian Champions, Kano Pillars, is confident his side will beat Nigeria and the other teams in the group.

“If you look at the two groups by name, it doesn’t look the same,”Jabir told

“All the same, football in Africa, you cannot underrate anybody.

“So I think since we all have been able to qualify to that level, it means we are equal.”
