Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has told Nigerians they expect a tough clash when Nigeria will host Ghana on Tuesday in the rematch of the World Cup qualifiers in Abuja.
The match’s first match ended 0-0 in Kumasi, with Nigeria now hoping to beat the Black Stars on Tuesday night.
Ighalo, who returned to the Super Eagles after his retreat, reminded his teammates that they had to qualify for the World Cup.
“We know we’re doomed to win at home, and if we want to go out to the World Cup, we have to win,” Manchester United’s former striker told reporters at Moshood Abiola Stadium on Sunday.
“We know it’s going to be a tough match, it’s going to be hard, but the boys are ready to start.
“We’re just calling on fans to come out on Tuesday to cheer on us, we’re really looking forward to them because they’re our 12th man.
“It’s impossible without them, so we want them to step out in numbers, support us and encourage us to win. By the grace of God, we will win the game, ”he declared.
