Home-based Super Eagles star Joseph Onoja says Nigeria must beat Ghana in the final qualification round for the 2023 African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Speaking to Goal, the midfielder said:
All is well in camp and we are focused and getting ready for this crunch and must-win qualifier against Ghana.
Our opponents are not pushovers but we are fearless and are well prepared for all their antics.
The nation is yet to recover from the defeat to their A side which denied us a place in the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar, we are aware of this and our target is to win both legs.
It doesn’t matter who gets dressed for action on that day, but the target is to win convincingly and book a ticket to Algeria.
The winner of the contest between Nigeria and Ghana will qualify for CHAN 2023 to be hosted by Algeria.
Nigeria failed to qualify for the last edition of the competition hosted by Cameroon. Meanwhile, Ghana’s last appearance was in 2014 in South Africa where they lost on penalties to Libya in the final.
The first leg will be played on Sunday August 28 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, Ghana.
