Black Stars Player Reveals The Reason Why They Beat Nigeria To Qualify For The World Cup.

Dennis Odoi who plays right-back for the national team of Ghana has come out to give the reason why the Black Stars were able to beat the Suoer Eagles of Nigeria in the World Cup playoffs. According to him, the Super Eagles had a better chance of qualifying as they had a better campaign in the AFCON and also had key players in the squad.

However, a weakened Ghanaian team ended up qualifying at the expense of a star-ridden Nigerian team. In an interview with New Frame, these were the words of Odoi. “They told me [about the rivalry]. But I think you must live here to know the real rivalry. I knew it was two West African countries that were close to each other “

-“We were fighting for the World Cup. It’s sweet that you win against Nigeria but no matter which country it was, we needed t win those two games.”

He concluded by saying, “If you look at the Nigerian squad, they had bigger names. But names are not everything. You can have big names but you have to be a good team and you need to be a cohesive group. I think over the two games, we showed them that we as a team were good and we fight for each other.”
