2022 World Cup: Shun Playoff With Nigeria – Ghana Lawmaker Tells Black Stars
Ghana national football team, Black Stars have been admonished to shun their 2022 World Cup qualifying playoff against Nigeria.
Naija News understands that the advisory was given by a member of the Ghanaian parliament, Patrick Boamah, who acknowledged that the Super Eagles are better off to participate in the world football competition than the Black Stars.
Ghana has a date with Nigeria in March in a two-legged playoff that would determine who makes it to the Qatar 2022 world cup.
However, Boamah is admonishing his home country to not waste their time playing against Nigeria.
Naija News understands that the lawmaker’s advisory is coming after Ghana failed to make it in the group stage of the ongoing African Cup of Nationa, AFCON 2021 tournament.
The Black Stars performed poorly in Cameroon, crashing out of the tournament without winning a single game in the group state.
Speaking about the need to allow Nigeria to go straight to the World Cup, Boamah, “If need be, we should dissolve our national team and prepare a team over the next five years,” Boamah said on the floor of parliament, according to Citi Sports via Goal.
“We should not waste our time playing Nigeria in the next World Cup qualifier.
“Look at the team Nigeria has, even though they are out of the tournament, I don’t think with this current set-up, we can stand the Nigerians.”
