NIGERIA vs GHANA

The Ghana vs Nigeria match has ended in a goalless draw.

  

Live • : .Ghana 0 -0 Nigeria.

90 + 4 minutes added time

83 mins: Dennis looks to make something happen out of nothing, driving past a couple of challenges but the third wins the ball back off him.

Match becoming increasingly stretched in the closing stages

NO PENALTY!

Etebo earns a yellow card for dissent as the referee returns to overturn his decision.

 

Replays show that Mohammed was fouled before handling the ball, so Ghana have a huge let-off.

PENALTY NIGERIA!

Handball from Ghana in the box, a mess all of Baba Mohammed’s making. He loses the ball on the edge of his own box and then handles.

 

Or did he? Referee is over to look at the monitor, we have a VAR review

74 mins: Another chance for Nigeria, Lookman coming on this time. Leicester’s representation on the pitch continues to grow.

 

He’s on for his Nigeria debut.

71 mins: That’s better from Ayew, cuts inside and gets a good shot away which is saved at the near post. Another corner.

 

It’s a great ball in this time, Gyan is completely free five yards out. If he’d have sorted his feet out, he would have had a tap in. As it is, Nigeria survive.

70.mins. Another great save by Nigeria goalkeeper

68 minutes: The first 28 minutes of the second half were not the best you’ll ever see. Both sides appear to be in a state of flux.

Every time a Ghana attack fails, home fans become increasingly frustrated.

62 mins: Djiku earns himself the first yellow card of the night. Handles the ball as Osimhen looks to knock it past him.

 

The Nigeria striker down holding his face still. Super Eagles going to have no players left at this rate!

60 mins: Partey with the shot from distance, always rising over the bar.

 

Innocent is down for Nigeria and the stretcher is on, looks like that might be his night over. No flow to the game at all at the moment, so many stoppages.

58 mins: That will be Simon’s final involvement in the match too. Watford’s Dennis is on to replace him.

 

Aribo also off, Onyeka on in his place.

55 mins: Victor Osimhen miss the ball

52 mins: Ayew spending as much time at left-back as he is further up the pitch. He tracks the run of Aina well and wins the ball back for his side.

Nigeria have the chance to break themselves though – Iheanacho gives it away with a terrible pass.

49 mins: Another corner for Ghana, they’ve been well on top since the break.

Ayew to take it again. Loops up this time, and Uzoho is off his line to claim confidently.

Quick turnaround between the two legs of this tie.

Return fixture takes place on Tuesday night in Nigeria – just a few days until we know which of these two sides will be playing in Qatar at the end of the year

Second Half underway.

HALF TIME : Ghana 0 -0 Nigeria.

45 +1 Great Save by Ekong

41 mins: BIG CHANCE!

Aribo gets in behind the defence and is played through on goal, but he loses his balance and shoots over the bar.

Nigeria is putting forth a strong effort to score the game’s first goal.

39 mins: Super Eagles having their best spell of the match here.

Ball drops for Osimhen on the edge of the ball, looks to curl an effort at goal but it’s well blocked right in front of him. He half appeals for handball, but even he doesn’t really believe it..

37 mins: Nigeria win their first corner of the match, which Simon comes across to take.

 

Amartey there at the near post to head it away to safety – not the best delivery at all. Nigeria keep the pressure on though, ball put back in and Osimhen gets a weak volley away at goal. Easy save.

33 mins: Osimhen is going to be fine to continue.

First save of the game! Fatawu hammers at effort at goal from 20 yards out, catches it so sweetly but Uzoho is up to the task and parries it away.

Corner for Ghana, comes to nothing again.

31 mins: Osimhen down after he’s caught by Kudus, looks like he might have awkwardly twisted his ankle.

 

Physios on to give him some treatment, so both sets of players have a chance to have a drink and get some instructions on the touchline.

26 mins: Nigeria’s best bet looks to be on the counter.

Osimhen very nearly has space to break into, but Djiku slides in to intercept. Crucial challenge.

Innocent then goes charging through Ayew to win the header, that’s about as obvious a free-kick as you’ll see.

24 mins: Partey clips the ball down the line for Fatawu to run onto.

He gets on the end of it, cuts inside and works the ball onto his left foot. Goes for goal from distance, again Nigeria are there to block though. Visitors have been solid at the back

12 mins: Superb from Simon, somehow twists his way past the three Ghana players that had surrounded him.

 

That’s less superb – sends the pass out for a throw-in as he looks to set Osimhen away on the left wing.

 

4 minutes ago

10 mins: Brief pause in play as Amartey stands on the ball and calls the referee over. Looks like it’s burst.

 

Quick replacement and we’re back underway! Fatawu skips past Simon, tries to then beat another… can only run it straight out of play.

 

8 mins: Osimhen with a brilliant piece of skill to keep the ball in play, but he only keeps it in for Mensah.

 

He bundles his way through a challenge and whips the ball into the box, headed away well.

 

5 mins: Odoi wins the ball back for Ghana and bursts forward down the right wing.

Cut-back is a decent one, but Gyan can’t sort his feet out quick enough and Nigeria intercept. Home side have started this one really quickly.

KICK-OFF!

We are underway!
