Former Nigerian goalkeeper, Andrew Aikhoumogbe is confident that the Super Eagles will make light work of Ghana in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Interim coach of the Super Eagles, Austine Eguavoen has named a 25-man squad with stand-by ahead of the first leg encounter at the Cape Coast Stadium on March 25 with the reverse fixture set for the Moshood Abiola Stadium Stadium in Abuja four days later.
Speaking ahead of the game, Aikhoumogbe in a chat with Completesports.com from his Cairo base in Egypt, stated that the Super Eagles will approach the game like a cup final.
“This is a game the Super Eagles knows they must have to prove a point and take something valuable to Nigeria if they are to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
“Yes, I agree that the game won’t be an easy one for Nigeria, however, I have so much confidence that the Super Eagles will take their Ghanaian counterpart to the cleaner regardless of where the game will be played.
“It’s Eagles all the way and I believe victory shall be achieved at the end.”
Nigeria are seeking to qualify for the World Cup a seventh time and, since 1994, have missed only one of seven editions. The last of three appearances by Ghana was in 2014.
