Nigeria vs Ghana: times, how to watch on TV, how to stream online
All the information you need on how to watch Nigeria play Ghana in the 2022 FIFA World Cup play-off final on Tuesday 29 March.
A tense 0-0 in Kumasi last Friday means that all will be decided in Abjua on Tuesday night in the West Africa derby with a place at the 2022 Qatar World Cup on the line.
A first leg match that saw clear cut chances at a premium sees Otto Addo's men knowing that scoring away could be key in securing a passage to Qatar with away goals counting double should the score be level on aggregate.
"We did well even though we made some mistakes, but we started well, there was just a little bit of fatigue and it made Nigeria come into the game more," said Ghana’s new coach Otto Addo after the game.
“We had two clear chances to finish off Ghana, but I think getting a draw is good even though we wanted to win here,” added his Nigerian counterpart Augustine Eguavoen.
Home side Ghana had more of the possession and chances but proved sloppy in their finishing.
Only twice did they test goalkeeper Francis Uzoho, who made a stop from a stinging shot by Issahaku Fatawu in the 33rd minute and then again in the 71st minute from Mohammed Kudus.
Nigeria’s best opening fell to Moses Simon 10 minutes into the second half but he squandered the chance to score a vital away goal.
Nigeria were awarded a penalty with 15 minutes left when Idrissu Baba Mohamed handled the ball after being tripped in his own penalty area, but after a VAR check the referee changed his decision and handed Ghana a free kick.
