2023 CHAN: Ghana Prevails over Nigeria


Ghana emerged victorious on penalties 5-4 against Nigeria to qualify for the African Nations Championship in Algeria next year.

Nigeria fought back in the second leg to level the aggregate (2-2), with two second half goals, to send the home crowd into a frenzy, and force the game into penalties.

Eventually, the Eagles lost in the shootouts, Maurice Chukwu missed the team’s third kick and the Black Galaxies delivered a perfect 5.

Coach Salisu Yusuf and the coaching crew added to Nigeria’s disappointment, as they refused to honor the post-match presser.

It would be another tournament qualifying ticket picked up by Ghana at the MKO Abiola Stadium, following the Black stars’ World Cup playoff triumph over the Super Eagles earlier in the year.
