Super Eagles forward, Jude Odion Ighalo have reiterated that the second leg World Cup playoff against Ghana won’t be an easy task in Abuja, Nigeria.
The three-times African champions were held to a goalless draw in Kumasi on Friday and must now beat the Black Stars of Ghana in Abuja to clinch a spot in Qatar.
Speaking on Sunday with the Nigeria Football Federation TV, Ighalo said the team will “fight from start to finish” to be at the World Cup.
“It’s going to be home advantage for us but we are not going to go to sleep because it’s going to be a difficult game, it’s going to be a tough one.
“Ghana are going to come out, all out in Abuja, because they have nothing to lose now, than to come out, because we are playing at home.
“We just have to give our best, hundred and ten percent in the game on Tuesday, take our chances, fight from the start to finish, till the final whistle.
“I know by God’s grace we are going to come out victorious, but we have to work hard.”
The former Manchester United striker revealed he has been telling the younger players what it meant to play in the World Cup.
“I tried to talk to the younger guys that have not been there before now-this is an opportunity to go to Qatar 2022 because you won’t know how it feels now but after your football career, you will understand what it means to play in the World Cup.
“I have been there and I know what it feels like and I am looking forward by God’s grace to go to another one,” Ighalo concluded.
Well I wish the super eagle a good outing and pray for them to win.
