The Super Eagles of Nigeria were held to a disappointing draw against Ghana in their first-leg encounter on Friday night.
Nigeria had only one shot in the first half before adding two more in the second 45 minutes, which was a disgraceful performance.
Nigerian fans were not the only ones who were disappointed with the outcome of their first-leg match in the ongoing African World Cup qualifiers.
Senegal, the reigning African Champions, fell short against Egypt, while Cameroon struggled against Algeria at home on Friday evening.
However, Ghana, Senegal, and Cameroon still have a huge opportunity to turn things around in the second leg.
It wouldn’t be surprising if the three top countries qualify for the World Cup despite poor results in their first-leg matches.
Ghana, Cameroon, and Senegal have an excellent chance of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
I understand that believing Cameroon and Senegal will qualify for the World Cup is controversial, especially after their first-leg losses to Algeria and Egypt, respectively.
Senegal was undoubtedly the dominant team in their first-leg clash against Egypt, but they were unlucky to lose.
Cameroon did not perform as poorly as Algeria and will go into the second leg confidently.
The Super Eagles certainly did not impress in the first leg of their vital qualifying match against Ghana.
