The Black Stars had a poor outing at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
A lawmaker in the Ghanaian Parliament, Patrick Boamah, has counselled the Ghanaian national team not to waste their time in playing the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the forthcoming FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers playoff.
He stated this while reacting to the poor performance of the Ghanaian national team at the ongoing Nations Cup in Cameroon, where the team was eliminated from the group stage without a win. According to the parliament member, he doesn’t want the Black Stars of Ghana to face the Super Eagles because he feels that the Super Eagles are better than the Black Stars.
While addressing his colleagues on the floor of the parliament, Boamah said: “If need be, we should dissolve our national team and prepare a team over the next five years. We should not waste our time playing Nigeria in the next World Cup qualifier.”
He compared the performance of both teams at the ongoing AFCON and opined that the Black Stars of Ghana does not stand a chance against Nigeria.
“Look at the team Nigeria has, even though they are out of the tournament, I don’t think with this current set-up, we can stand the Nigerians,” Boamah opined.
Ghana and Nigeria are scheduled to slug it out in a two-legged playoff for a ticket to the FIFA Mundial in Qatar later this year. The first leg of the match will take place in Ghana on the 23rd of March while the reverse fixture of the encounter will take place in Nigeria a week later.
Ghana failed to qualify for the last edition of the FIFA World Cup in Russia after three consecutive appearances at the tournament. Nigeria, on the other hand, was in Russia but crashed out at the group stage.
