Everything is set for the much-anticipated match of the first-leg of the 2022 World Cup playoffs between Ghana and Nigeria in Kumasi on Friday, March 25.
The clash will decide which side picks up a spot at the global tournament, the tension associated with matches between the West African heavyweights has gone a notch higher as it is not only pride and bragging rights at stake.
Smarting from their recent unimpressive outing at the 2021 TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations tournament, the two countries are keen on winning back the support of their fans by qualifying for Qatar to banish the disappointment of last month’s tournament in Cameroon.

Well, the premises of Baba Yara Sports Stadium has been flooded with fans of Nigeria and Ghana ahead of today’s match. A video sighted online sees sympathizers of both national teams supporting the teams in high spirit.
