Nigeria captain, Ahmed Musah knows what is at stake as they play Ghana in the first leg of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at the Baba Yara Stadium on Friday, March 25.
The Super Eagles have had a poor record against the Black Stars in the past years but Musah, who plays for Fatih Karagumruk in the Turkish top flight, believes the narrative will change this time.
“For me I’m not going to say anything about the past record.
“They have a good record against Nigeria but this is a new generation of the Super Eagles.
“So we are going there to break that record to make it that Nigeria has won it over there.
“So tha the more talk on social media will reduce a little bit.
“I know that we will do all our best to make them happy,” Ahmed Musah told NFF medai.
“I know we said we were going to win the AFCON  but you everything that you are doing, you have a set back.
“So we had a set back in AFCON so the only thing that will make Nigeria proud is just to give them this ticket.
“And Insha Allah we will do that by the grace of God.” Ahmed Musah added.
The return fixture is set for the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on March 29 with the winner of both legs booking a slot at the global festival later this year.
Ghana is eying a return to the World Cup after missing the 2018 edition in Russia with Nigeria chasing a fourth consecutive appearance.
