Otto Addo, the coach of Black Stars of Ghana, says his team will surprise Nigeria’s Super Eagles by securing the 2022 FIFA World Cup ticket in Abuja.

Addo told newsmen at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s match that he was optimistic of victory.

He said he was confident because the Black Stars played well in Ghana and they would now improve on their performance in the return leg fixture in Abuja.

“We have a good team, and we played well in Ghana. We will improve on this, because we are here to push more, and we are determined.

“Moreover, I don’t see myself being under pressure, because it is a privilege to play against the Super Eagles in Nigeria.

“We are not better than the Super Eagles and the Super Eagles are not better than us.

“But we are here to improve on our game until we are satisfied with our performance and score some goals,” the coach said.

Speaking also, Gideon Mensah, a Black Stars player, said they would maintain the team spirit in their return match against the Super Eagles.

“We will do better than what we did in Kumasi, we are not just thinking of qualifying, we must qualify from tomorrow’s match,” Gideon said.

Our correspondent reports that the Super Eagles of Nigeria will host the Black Stars of Ghana in their return match on Tuesday at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium from 6 p.m.

Nigeria and Ghana had played a goalless draw in their first leg game in Kumasi on Friday.

It was reported that the 2022 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to take place in Qatar from Nov. 21 to Dec.18.
