Ghana Qualifies For Qatar 2022 World Cup, Hold Nigeria To A Draw

The Black stars of Ghana has secured a ticket to the 2022 World Cup after playing against Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday, Naija News reports.

Recall that last week, Ghana hosted a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the world cup play-off.

The two teams today created tense moments at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja as they battled for a ticket to Qatar 2022.

Ghana took the lead in the 11th minute with an opener from Arsenal player, Thomas Partey.

Hope was, however, restored for Nigerians after Troost-Ekong won a penalty kick to make it 1-1 and it remained that way in the first half.

Unfortunately for the Nigerian team, the game ended 1-1 in the second half, an advantage for Ghana which scored an away goal.

Naija News understands that the last time the two countries were involved in a FIFA World Cup qualifying was in 2001 when they finished 0-0 in Accra before Nigeria hammered the Ghanians 3-0 in Port Harcourt in July 2001 to qualify for Korea/Japan.
