The principal leg apparatus at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi finished in a 0-0 draw, passing on everything to play for on Tuesday.


"Afena-Gyan's development and speed forthright show that he is a legitimate striker. We did not send a striker to the previous Afcon. It was an issue," Tagoe told Connect FM on 19-year-old Afena-Gyan, who made his Ghana debut in Friday's installation.


"Be that as it may, Afena is an appropriate striker, like Asamoah Gyan and me.


"Taking a gander at how they [Nigeria] drew with us, nothing shows that we wouldn't have the option to beat them in the bring leg back.


"We presently enjoy a benefit in light of the away objective rule. We need to score an objective there."


Tagoe played at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, close by Asamoah Gyan, who has proceeded to turn into Ghana's record-breaking top scorer and most-covered player.


While Afena-Gyan won a ton of adoration for his exhibition on Friday, Crystal Palace expert Jordan Ayew experienced an alternate destiny, experiencing harsh criticism for an alleged disappointing presentation.


Dissimilar to the prominent sentiment, previous Ghana worldwide Abukari Damba offered a marginally unique interpretation of the 30-year-old.


He told Joy FM: "Jordan Ayew is an incredible player… everything revolves around how he is sent on the pitch.


"Jordan is a player who makes a great deal of progress on the pitch.


"We want to outline a system on the best way to get the ball toward the rear of the net. Objective scoring is the issue, not simply strikers."


The victors of Tuesday's conflict in Abuja join four different countries to address Africa at the World Cup, which runs from November 21 to December 18 in the not so distant future.
