‘Nigeria Pretend To Be Big Boys, But They’re Our Little Babies’   –GFA president, Okraku

The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku, has described Nigeria as “little babies” who pretend to be big boys.

In an interview ahead of the crucial 2022 World Cup playoffs between Ghana and the Super Eagles, Okraku says the Black Stars must stand up and be counted.

“It’s that time of the year where every Ghanaian will have to stand up and be counted. It’s that time of the year where our country’s pride is at stake,” Okraku told Joy Sports.

“It’s that time of the year where Ghana must be at the Mundial, but before we do that, we have a common foe, the Super Eagles of Nigeria. They come across as our little babies, but they pretend to be the big boys.”

The first leg is scheduled for Friday, March 25, 2022, at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, while the second leg will take place on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 at Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja.

This comes after Nigeria’s Sports Minister, Sunday Dare, also said the Super Eagles “will beat the sh*t” out of Ghana. Speaking to the technical crew of the Super Eagles on Wednesday morning, he noted that Nigeria will not settle for a draw.

“We’re not going to play a draw in Ghana, honestly. We’ll beat the shit out of them,” Dare said in a video that has gone viral.

“These guys should just go out, there’s insurance to their next match. There’s insurance there and there’s insurance here.”

Ghana hold a better head-to-head record over their West African rivals and have not lost to Nigeria in over 16 years.

    All this shakara will end on Friday night. By the way, a Nigerian minister should not be using foul language in public.

      We were actually praying to God to give us Nigeria because we knew we can easily beat u and it will happen on Friday. You will not survive in kumasi

        What is there in Kumasi? Whatever you have in Kumasi is neutralized. Anyone that wins shall win according to strength and tactics

         
      • Are you sure you prayed to God to give you Nigeria? This is contrary to what Sulley Muntari said that whoever paired Nigeria and Ghana together has lost his mind.
        The fact is that Nigeria needs the World Cup ticket than Ghana. Get that into your cranium
