WCQ: ‘Ghana and Nigeria clash can go either way’ – Gyan

Former Ghana striker, Asamoah Gyan has admitted the 2022 World Cup playoffs between his country and Nigeria next month could go either way.

The two West African giants face off in a two-legged game to battle for one of the five slots available in the CAF Zone.

Asamoah Gyan claims that the tie is difficult to predict, because of the long-standing rivalry between the two West African countries.

“Ghana and Nigeria are rivals, you cannot predict,” Asamoah said.

“Anybody can win, so we just have to stay focused and do what they have to do on the field,” he added.

Asamoah Gyan scored for the Black Stars in the last competitive game between the two teams at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.

Ghana will have home advantage first on March 23rd before the second leg that will be played on March 27th with the aggregate winners securing a place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
