Nigeria striker, Odion Ighalo says they must fight from the blast of the whistle until the end of their second leg World Cup qualifiers against Ghana.
The Super Eagles host the Black Stars on Tuesday at the Moshood Abiola Stadium after the first tie ended goalless in Kumasi on Friday.
The winner of the two legs books a slot in Qatar later this year and Ighalo believes they must work hard to claim the ticket.
“I try to talk to the younger guys that have been there before that, this is an opportunity for us 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.
“Like I said, I’ve been there before, I know what it is and I’m looking forward by God’s grace to go to another one again,” Odion Ighalo told NFF media.
“It’s 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 game.
“Ghana, they are going to come all out here because they have nothing to lose now than to come out.
“Because we are playing home, so we just have to give our best one hundred and ten percent in the game on Tuesday, take our chances, right 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, it’s going to be a tough one but we are going to win by God’s grace.” Odion Ighalo added.
The Super Eagles are chasing a second consecutive appearance with Ghana attempting a return to the mundial after failure to reach the last edition in Russia 2018.
