Nigeria star: Ghana will not stop us

African Football

Nigeria international Oghenekaro Etebo has sent a stern message to Ghana ahead of their 2022 FIFA World Cup play-off fixture later this month.

The Super Eagles and Ghana will square off in a two-legged play-off later this month, with the winner securing a ticket to Qatar in November.

Both teams had a disappointed Africa Cup of Nations last month, but Etebo is confident the Super Eagles will overcome the Black Stars later this month.

“We need to focus on the World Cup qualification. It’s going to be tough, but I believe Ghana will not stop us,” Etebo said, as per Punch.

“We have what it takes to qualify and I believe we will achieve this feat. They are preparing and we as well are doing everything we can to ensure we qualify for Qatar.

“I was in a meeting with the coaches and the Nigerian Football Federation recently and we all had one motive: to ensure we qualify for the World Cup. It’s a collective effort and I believe we will achieve this qualification dream.”
