Ghana captain, Thomas Partey has warned the Super Eagles of Nigeria that his side will go for victory when both teams clash in the second leg of the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff in Abuja, on Tuesday.
The Arsenal midfielder issued the warning while reacting to Ghana’s World Cup playoff first-leg 0-0 draw against Nigeria on Friday.
Leakblast.com reports that Nigeria held Ghana to a goalless draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, on Friday night.
Speaking to reporters during his post-match press conference after the match, Partey said: “We know we should have won this game against Nigeria but a draw is not bad. However, I know that our fans are disappointed in us, as we had promised them victory.
“Nevertheless, it isn’t over until it is over and we promise all Ghanaians that we will go for victory in Abuja come Tuesday.”
