Otto Addo, the coach of Black Stars of Ghana, says his team will surprise Nigeria’s Super Eagles by securing the 2022 FIFA World Cup ticket in Abuja.
Addo stated the position of the Ghanaians to newsmen at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Monday.
He said he was confident because the Black Stars played well in Ghana and they would now improve on their performance in the return leg fixture in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said: “We have a good team, and we played well in Ghana.
“We will improve on this because we are here to push more, and we are determined.
“Moreover, I don’t see myself being under pressure because it is a privilege to play against the Super Eagles in Nigeria.
“We are not better than the Super Eagles and the Super Eagles are not better than us.
“But we are here to improve on our game until we are satisfied with our performance and score some goals.”
Speaking also, Gideon Mensah, a Black Stars player, said they would maintain the team spirit in their return match against the Super Eagles.
Mensah said: “We will do better than what we did in Kumasi, we are not just thinking of qualifying, we must qualify from tomorrow’s match.”

Nigeria and Ghana had played a goalless draw in their first leg game in Kumasi on Friday.
