During the first leg of the 2022 Fifa World Cup final qualification match, Ghana held the Super Eagles of Nigeria to a goalless draw.

At the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, the Black Stars got off to a quick start, but the Super Eagles held strong to ward off the hosts’ dangerous onslaught.

In the opening 45 minutes, the home team had more shots and set-pieces, but they needed the quality to defeat the Eagles.

The finest chance for the Super Eagles was devised by Simon. After the winger gained space on the left flank 10 minutes into the second half, goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott saved his extra effort.

Ghana had another opportunity to grab the lead in the 71st minute when Kudus burst through on goal from the right, but Uzoho saved his effort for a corner kick.

The center referee later awarded Nigeria a penalty after a handball in the 18-yard box, but overturned his decision hand Ghana a free-kick in the final 15 minutes after a VAR review.

Etebo was unable to conceal his dissatisfaction with the decision, and as a result of his objections to the referee, he was given a yellow card.

As a result of the tie, both Nigeria and Ghana will compete for pride in the rematch on March 29 at the Moshood Abiola Stadium.

Both teams will concentrate on the rematch, which will determine whether or not they qualify for the World Cup final in Qatar.
