Former Nigeria international, George Abbey believes the Black Stars of Ghana will find it easier to scout the Super Eagles of Nigeria, ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifying playoff.
Ghana missed out on the last edition in Russia, and would like to return to the mondial event at the expense of Nigeria, who are hoping to make a fourth consecutive appearance.
The four times African champions were knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in the group stage, their worst performance in history.
Ghana Football Association (GFA) later sacked the team’s head coach, Milovan Rajevac, and appointed former Borussia Dortmund defender, Otto Addo as their new coach with Chris Hughton to serve as technical advisor.
George Abbey speaking on an Instagram live session anchored by OJBSPORT and TeamNigeriaUk said ; “Nigeria don’t know what Ghana’s new coach are going to implement, we don’t know the new players they are bringing in.
“Ghana will find it easier to scout us (Super Eagles), because I don’t think a lot is going to change from our team.”
Abbey was part of the 2004 Africa Cup on Nations, AFCON bronze-winning team in Tunisia.
Nigeria take on Ghana in the 20,000 –capacity Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Friday 25th March, with the reverse leg set for the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Tuesday, 29th March.
