Super Eagles interim Technical Adviser, Austin Eguavoen has revealed that the three times African champions motive was to get a win in Ghana yesterday.
The game ended in a goalless draw. Super Eagles must now beat the Black Stars in Abuja on Tuesday to be at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
“We wanted to win the game and if we could not get the win, at least settle for a draw. That is exactly what happened.
“Organization was very good, for the fact that Ghana moves the ball really good.
“But we organized, we were in position, we combined well in all the lines, but the only thing is that we did not react quickly after an action and that is something we have to work on.
“Try as possible to get behind the ball because you cannot let Ghanaian freedom on the ball because technically they were very good.” Eguavoen said.
Nigeria will take on Ghana in the reverse fixture at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja, on Tuesday.
Both West African nations have met 57 times since their first game in the 1950s. Tuesday’s crucial clash will be the 58th installment of one of football’s most storied rivalries.
