It is a gloomy night for Nigerian football. The Giants of Africa will not be at a World Cup for the first time since 2006.

It is a night where everything has to be looked at again when it comes to Nigerian football. How have we failed to book their spot at the biggest sporting event this year?

Match Summary

In a very tense game, the Super Eagles conceded a very cheap goal early on in the first half. Thomas Partey`s shot bounced before squeezing past Uzoho in goal. 

Nigeria almost responded immediately through Victor Osimhen. The Napoli striker pounced on a pass from Troost Ekong but he fired his shot just wide. 

Nigeria were awarded a penalty after Ademola Lookman was fouled in the box. Troost Ekong dispatched the spot kick after the VAR check.

The second half started slowly in terms of Chances. Ghana played the perfect delay strategy to knock the momentum out of the Super Eagles.
