The reverse fixture is set for March 27 at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja with the winner qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The Super Eagles have already named their squad of the clash in March with Ghana yet to name its squad for the all important clash.

Ghana has a new technical team led by ex-Ghana international, Otto as head coach and former Newcastle United manager, Chris Hughton as the technical advisor. Ex Dutch international, George BOATENG and ex Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah and former Kotoko coach, Mas Ud Didi Dramani as the other assistants.

The Super Eagles on the other hand have still settled on ex-international defender, Augustine Eguavoen who led them to the 2021 AFCON round 16. The news however is that, Taiwo Awoniyi who led the Super Eagles attack at the 2021 AFCON has put on the stand-by list in case of any eventualities.
