Ghana coach Otto Addo says he has devised a plan to beat Nigeria in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final play-offs first leg tie.
The two West Africa heavyweight nations will face each other on Friday, March 25, and Tuesday, March 29, 2022 for a place in Qatar, with the tie set to be remembered for quite some times given the rivalry.
Nigeria, who decided to keep Augustine Eguavoen after the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, are hunting a fourth consecutive World Cup, while Ghana are looking to return after missing out on Russia 2018.
“It is reasonable that people are skeptical because of our performance at the AFCON but we have a chance to go to the World Cup and skepticism among the press and Ghanaians makes us work harder.” Otto Addo said at his pre-match press conference.
“We have a plan but I cannot tell you what exactly it is but we hope that it will be visible for everyone to see but football is football; you can play good and lose or play very bad and still win but we have worked hard to ensure that we implement our ideas on the pitch so we have the highest chance of qualifying to the World Cup.”
Ghana became just the third African side to reach the World Cup quarter-finals in 2010, losing to Uruguay on penalties, and are aiming to secure their fourth appearance at the tournament.
