The Super Eagles were unable to stop the spirited African side from winning a vital 1-1 draw against their African opponents in Abuja. On the day‚ angry Super Eagles fans threw water bottles at the team's players and staff. In the 10th minute‚ Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey scored an incredible away goal to give Ghana a shock lead. However‚ after the match‚ the Super eagles were unable to come back and level the score. The away goal by a substitute - William Trost-Ekong‚ a Watford defender - was enough to send Ghana through the group stage. The match began scrappily‚ with both sides trying to create chances for their strikers. However‚ Ghana managed to grab a vital away goal through a Partey penalty outside the house box. Nigeria responded well to the goal‚ with Ademola Lookman weaving into the box before slotting past Daniel Amartey. The home side's defence was well covered‚ and the game was a close one throughout. Following a 1-0 draw in the first leg in Cairo‚ the African team were given a realistic chance to reach the World Cup. They had the advantage‚ but the margin was quickly eroded. An Idrissa Gana Gueye free kick was cleared off the line by a defender before an Arsenal midfielder equalised. The goalkeeper's error allowed Thomas Partey to take advantage of the error and score an equaliser in the 22nd minute. After the first half ended‚ Ghana made three changes and adjusted to a 3-5-2 formation. This improved their midfield manageability and attacking ability. Unfortunately‚ Nigeria couldn't hold on to the momentum. As the game went on‚ Victor Osimhen began to get increasingly frustrated. Despite their function‚ Ghana moved on to the next phase. With a deserved result‚ they were rewarded for their efforts. With the win‚ the African side is assured of progressing to the next round. Now they have to face Senegal and Algeria in the last match. Both teams were in the finals at the end of the season. Both teams have two losses. The South Africans have won the Cup of Nations final. The Nigerians will be looking for their fifth straight victory in the second round. It was not a good night for Ghana. The Nigerians had a great chance to win the match‚ but the match ended 2-1 in favor of the Africans. With this win‚ Ghana will reach the finals in its seventh successive appearance at the World Cup.
The game will be played in Qatar. With this win‚ the team will be facing Senegal in the semi-finals. The game between Nigeria and the African side is a tough one. After a stalemate‚ the game is unlikely to end in a draw. After all‚ a win would mean that the country will go on to host the World Cup. And it's a good time for this to happen. With a win‚ the African team will qualify for the tournament. The game between Ghana and Nigeria has been a real thriller so far. Despite a poor start‚ the match ended with an away goal for the African side. A point in the World Cup final would mean that the two sides could meet again‚ but there are a few problems in the process. And the game ended in a draw‚ so the organisers will have to work out how to play against Nigeria. It is a massive blow for the Nigeria team to lose to Ghana. They had previously reached the World Cup final in 2006‚ 2010‚ and 2014 but were eliminated from this tournament in the last two years. With the loss‚ they were left out of the tournament and will have to wait until 2022 to play at the World Cup. A win would ensure a place in the finals.
