GHALCA commend Black Stars for 2022 World Cup berth
GHALCA | March 31st, 2022|
The Ghana League Clubs Association have congratulated the Black Stars for securing qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Ghana held Nigeria to a 1-1 draw in the Nigerian capital on Tuesday, winning the tie on away goals to become the first African country to book a ticket to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
You promised and you have delivered. Ghana is proud of you for fighting for a place in #Qatar2022.
You did it away from home and that's what makes it special. SALUTE @GhanaBlackstars
The hero is Thomas Partey. The Arsenal midfielder cooled off the packed Abuja stadium by opening the score in the 11th minute.
Nigeria thought they had done the hard part when they quickly equalised with a generous penalty, which was converted by William Troost-Ekong.
Despite their intense domination, the Super Eagles were unable to take the lead with Victor Osimhen still as clumsy as ever up front.
Ghana is back in the World Cup after three consecutive appearances in 2006, 2010 and 2014.
