Nigeria vs Ghana: Black Stars have nothing to lose – Ighalo warns Super Eagles


Super Eagles attacker, Odion Ighalo, has warned his teammates that the Black Stars of Ghana have nothing to lose when both teams clash in a 2022 FIFA World Cup second leg playoff in Abuja on Tuesday.


Ighalo warned Super Eagles players that the Black Stars would come against them when both teams clash at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium.


Recall that Ighalo was an unused substitute as Nigeria drew 0-0 with Ghana last Friday in Kumasi.


“I talk to the younger guys that have not been there before that it’s an opportunity to go to the Qatar 2022 World Cup because you won’t know how it feels now,” Ighalo told NFF TV.


“It’s after your football career that you will understand what it means to play at the World Cup. I have been there before and I know what it means to play at the World Cup and I’m looking forward to going to another one again.


“Home advantage for us, but we won’t go to sleep. It will be a difficult and tough game. Ghana will come out because they have nothing to lose now we are playing at home.


“We have to give our best 110% in the game on Tuesday, take our chances, fight from start to finish until the final whistle. I know we will be victorious by God’s grace, but it won’t be easy. It will be a tough one.”
