In the wake of a goalless draw in the first leg on home ground, the Black Stars of Ghana head to Nigeria on Tuesday night with their stylish yellow and black jersey in hope of setting records straight (2W, 2D) in four outings against the Super Eagles and enhancing their turf in World rankings.
Likewise, for the Super Eagles, an attempt by all means to triumph over the Black Stars is their priority in their colorful white and green jersey at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium based in Abuja.
Both Nations have huge expectations which rule out any favorite ahead of this clash and as we oversaw the game plan and tactics from both coaches, we are confident this will be a probable lineup for both sides.
Super Eagles of Nigeria
Super Eagles coach Augustine Eguavoen might probable make one or two changes in the lineup as they prepare for a win:
Showed great composure and discipline In gloves at the expanse of Maduka Okoye and the first leg – Francis Uzoho is assured of his place once again. William Troost-Ekong and Leon Balogun will maintain Uzoho cover at the heart of the defense whilst Ola Aina and Zaidu Sanusi tackle the wing-back, feeding Osimhen and likes with long passes and crosses.
Watford Oghenekaro Etebo will be in charge of the holding role at the expanse of Bonke Innocent who had a minor injury in the first leg leaving Joe Aribo to connect and influx both the midfield and the attack with passing.
Watford Emmanuel Dennis will probably take the left side of the midfield if Samuel Chukwueze failed to recover in time partnering with speed monster Moses Simon on the other side.
At the striking force, Kelechi Iheanacho is certainly to make the bench after an unimpressive performance in the first leg paving way for Odion Iglaho to be paired with Victor Osimhen as the front two.
Ghana Black Stars
Black Stars Coach Otto Addo have no injury concern ahead of this trip but a change in the first leg lineup is certain with Daniel Kofi-Kyereh coming in for Abdul Fatawu Issahaku as a supporting striker.
Showed great interceptions And good communication skills, Joseph Wollacott is set to guiding the goal post once and being covered by the routine back four – Denis Odoi and Gideon Mensah in the fullback with fans favorites Daniel Amartey and Alexander Djiku in the center back.
Mohammed Kudus, Iddrisu Baba, and Thomas Partey all maintain their positions in the central role. In addition, Iddrisu Baba and Thomas Partey will be responsible for deep-diving into their own half and possessing into opposition half through the attackers.
Played eight minutes in the first leg, Daniel Kofi-Kyereh will be paired as a supporting striker to Jordan Ayew and Felix Afena-Gyan feeding them with his passing skills as well as creating space and shooting if necessary.
