World Cup Playoffs: Will Ghana Ride On History To Qualify Against In Form Nigeria?

The much-awaited draw between CAF playoffs draws came off today in Cameroon where the Black Stars of Ghana was handed what many has labeled as a tough pairing against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Where Ghana will take on Nigeria on 24th March with a return leg on the 28th March in Nigeria too. With brief history, the Super Eagles don't have a chance against Ghana but with current form Nigeria will wallop Ghana and easily run over them.

As it stands, the last time Ghana went to the World Cup was in 2014. Ghana has been at the World Cup on three occasions; 2006, 2010, and 2014.

Ghana was conspicuously missing in action at the Mundial in 2018. Nigeria has appeared at the World Cup 6 times, [ 1994, 1998, 2002, 2010,2014,2018 ].

However, their best performance has been Round of 16 finishes in 1994, 1998, and 2014.

Nigeria has been to the last three World Cups and will be seeking to make it a 4th consecutive World Cup for the 1st time in their history.

Ghana is one of the three African countries that have reached the quarter-final of the World Cup, with the other two beings, Senegal and Cameroon.

Ghana and Nigeria have played 49 games with Ghana winning 21 games, losing 10, and drawing 18 times.

The last time both teams met was in 2011. It was in an international friendly which ended in a goalless draw.

Head to head between Ghana and Nigeria

Games - 49 

Ghana won - 21 

Nigeria won - 10

Draws - 18

In all I see the Black Stars of Ghana with a new crop of players and technical team making it past the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Do you agree with me?
