Nigeria Vs Ghana: The Nigeria’s Super Eagles face off against the Black Stars of Ghana in an international friendly.

Friday’s friendly between Nigeria and Ghana, two of Africa’s biggest teams, will take place at Stade de Marrakech.

While the Super Eagles performed admirably to reach the Africa Cup of Nations championship game last month, the trophy ultimately went to the hosts, Ivory Coast.

Nigeria is currently getting ready for the 20226 World Cup qualifiers, and manager Jose Peseiro will undoubtedly use the March friendly to try out as many players as he can.

Despite Victor Osimhen missing, Ademola Lookman, Alex Iwobi, and Wilfried Ndidi should all be considered because they all made the team.

In contrast, the Black Stars did not perform well in the Ivory Coast’s main event, as the team was not selected for the round of 16.

Nigeria are expected to demonstrate their worth on the pitch because they are a stronger team than Ghana.

After the African Cup of Nations, this will be the opponent West African team’s first international match.

The Black Stars advanced from the group stage, while the Super Eagles made it to the championship game but were defeated by the host Ivory Coast.

The Ghanaians, under new manager Otto Addo, will attempt to start over from scratch. Ghana’s AFCON campaign was incredibly disappointing, even at the Group Stage.

Nigeria will also face Ghana in the match under the direction of a new management.

Despite performing admirably, goalkeeper Jose Peseiro chose to leave the country after the devastating result in the AFCON final.

With a first call-up, the African nation has chosen to give numerous potential players their debuts.

Benjamin Tainimu, the center-back, has been called up for the first time in his career, joining promising players like Tyronne Ebuehi, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, and Nathan Tella.

Nigeria’s defense will be led by Gabriel Osho of Luton Town, who possesses strong leadership abilities.

For a somewhat timid Luton Town, the Nigerian has been one of the few bright spots of the season.

It’s interesting to note that just one of the four matches ended in a draw, with Ghana prevailing by a comfortable 2-0 score.
