“There is no doubt that the upcoming clash between the Super Eagles and the Black Stars of Ghana will be a tough battle for both teams considering the rivalry between them,’’
the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games gold medalist told Complete Sports during an interview.
“Having watched the performance of the Black Stars and the Super Eagles at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, I am confident that Nigeria look more superior than their opponent in terms of play and players involved…However, the Nigerian coach must be careful in their approach and tactics if they must overcome Ghana in both legs of the World Cup playoff.”
