The Super Eagles of Nigeria did not qualify for the 2022 World Cup after losing on away goals to the Black Stars of Ghana.
Although the match ended 1-1 in Abuja Tuesday and 1-1 on aggregate, the away goal by Ghana secured the World Cup ticket for the Black Stars.
Ghana qualified for the World Cup for a third time after a 1-1 result against the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Tuesday at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
Ghana took the lead through Thomas Partey’s long-range shot which somehow found a way past Francis Uzoho in the 10th minute. It had undertones of the goal that beat Maduka Okoye at the Nations Cup in January.
That goal counted double in the event that the match ended 1-1. The Eagles thus faltered at the last hurdle with almost everything in their favour after holding the Black Stars to a barren draw last Friday in Kumasi.
