Qatar 2022 Qualifier: Nigeria, Ghana Play Out Tense Stalemate


Nigeria had to settle for a 0-0 draw in Ghana Friday night after VAR overruled a decision to award the visitors a penalty in the first leg of a World Cup play-off.

A review of the decision in the closing stages of the West African showdown in Kumasi found that Ghana midfielder Iddrisu Baba was fouled before he handled the ball

Ghana came closest to breaking the deadlock with Nigerian goalkeeper Francis Uzoho pulling off a superb save to deny Fatahu Ishaku in the first half.

The second leg of the two-legged affairs comes up at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on Tuesday 29th March
