1 year ago

The Black Galaxies have departed Accra for the CHAN qualifying second leg tie against the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Saturday.

Ghana’s home based senior national team beat their Nigerian counterparts 2-0 in the first leg encounter at the Cape Coast Stadium last weekend and are poised to seal qualification in the return encounter.

The game is scheduled for the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja on Saturday, September 3, 2022 and will kick off at 5pm Nigeria time (4pm GMT).

A contingent made up of players, technical team and management members are expected to arrive in Abuja on Friday morning and train ahead of Saturday’s crunch game.

Coach Annor Walker’s side are poised to secure a positive result in the return encounter and end Ghana’s eight-year absence from the CHAN tournament.

Next year’s edition of the tournament will be staged in Algeria from January 8 – February 5, 2023.
