Eguavoen confident of clinching 2022 World Cup ticket

Super Eagles interim Technical Adviser Augustine Eguavoen has expressed his confidence of clinching the Qatar 2022 World Cup ticket next month.

The Super Eagles will battle Ghana’s Black Stars in the double-legged 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier next month with the winner of the clash to feature at the mundial in Qatar later in the year.

He however admitted that the Black Stars will present a formidable foe for Nigeria when the two teams meet next month.

The Ghanaians seek to return to the Mundial after missing the last edition in Russia after failing to advance past the group stages after recording no win in three games at the just concluded 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The Super Eagles’ impressive display at the 33rd edition of the Afcon has seen the team rise from the fifth-best to the third-best national side on the continent.

“I was impressed with the high level of discipline and commitment of the players at the AFCON in Cameroon, and I feel privileged to lead the group.

“We have two tough games against Ghana next month, but I am not too worried because we have a squad that knows it is a mountain that we have to climb.

“We have a good headache to deal with – which is a surplus of good players. I want to thank the Government and the NFF for all the support during the AFCON; we will need even greater support for the World Cup playoff,” Eguavoen said.
