Black Stars Technical Advisor Chris Hughton has urged Ghanaians to remain calm and positive about the team’s chances ahead of the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup final play-offs against Nigeria.

Ghana will take on Nigeria in the 1st leg of the final play-offs on Friday, March 25, 2022, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi before travelling to Abuja for the return leg on March 29, 2022, at the Moshood Abiola Stadium.

The winner of the tie will represent the continent at the World football showpiece which is scheduled to take place from November 21 to December 18, 2022.

“I’ll like to urge Ghanaians to remain calm and positive about the team because we strongly believe we have the quality, desire, and hunger to achieve the results that we want. It is our aim to qualify for the Qatar World Cup and we all have a duty to make that dream a reality,” former Newcastle United and Brighton manager said.

“Ghana has done it before and we can guarantee you that everybody associated with the Black Stars wants this opportunity again to perform on a world stage. This moment presents an opportunity to write history and we – players, technical staff, Ghana Football Association, and the government – are all committed to it. We value your support, we are Ghana and we are ready.”

Black Stars will depart Accra for Kumasi on Tuesday, March 22, 2022, to begin preparation for the crucial qualifier.
