Nigeria vs Ghana: Why we beat Super Eagles – Black Stars coach, Otto Addo


Ghana national team coach, Otto Addo, has said that his team defeated the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a 2022 FIFA World Cup double-leg playoff fixture due to luck.


Addo also said that the Black Stars won against Nigeria because his players adapted very well in the second half during the second-leg tie at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja.


Addo’s men qualified for the World Cup by away goal after playing a 1-1 draw against Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday.


Goals from Thomas Partey and William Troost-Ekong ensured both teams drew in Abuja.


The Black Stars had drawn 0-0 against the Super Eagles in Kumasi last Friday.


Speaking after the game, Addo told Joy Sports Ghana: “I am really delighted, exulted that it was a tough match, we found our way through we had big problems, especially in the first half.


“And we made some changes, the players adapted very well. They [Nigeria] had some good chances. Our goalkeeper was there when we needed him. The defensive line was outstanding. We had a little bit of luck also.”
