2022 WCQ: Baba Yara ‘spirit’ will help Ghana beat Nigeria

Samuel Anim Addo

Executive council member of the Ghana Football Association, Samuel Anim Addo says the ‘spirit’ in Kumasi will help the Black Stars defeat the Super Eagles of Nigeria later this month when the two sides meet in the FIFA World Cup play-offs.

After the rejection of the Cape Coast Stadium, FIFA granted Ghana a “one-match” approval for the use of the Baba Yara to host Nigeria in the first-leg of the final round of World Cup qualifies.

The Baba Yara Sports Stadium has witnessed some of Ghana’s greatest ever performances, notable among them being the 6-1 win over Egypt eight years to secure a ticket to the 2014 FIFA World Cup hosted in Brazil.

Speaking on Citi TV’s Football Made in Ghana Show, Samuel Anim Addo said Ghanaians should rally behind the Black Stars to create an intimidating atmosphere to help give Ghana an advantage over Nigeria on Friday, March 25, 2022.

“There has been some flexibility in the systems, and I urge every Ghanaian to come around. There is some spirit in Kumasi, and we want them to feel it when they come around to play us,” he said.

“The Nigerians know that we are better than them, they know that whatever they know about football and life, we taught them. They claim we don’t have Asamoah Gyan, but they must know that the spirit of Gyan will be there and we will score them, the spirit of the Asanteman kingdom will be behind us, and we score them. They must feel the heat that they are coming to play in Kumasi. We will show them that we are Ghana,” he added.
