It is no longer news that Nigeria’s Super Eagles are on the cusp of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar but the three-time African Champions still need to get past their fiercest rivals, the Black Stars of Ghana, to make it to the Mundial.
Having navigated through the group stage where they overpowered the likes of Cape Verde, Liberia, and the Central African Republic, the Super Eagles are 180 minutes away from Qatar 2022 with a two-legged tie against the Black Stars being the last hurdle.
