Kurt Okraku, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), has slammed Nigeria’s Super Eagles, calling them “small babies pretending to be big boys.”
Nigeria and Ghana will compete in a two-leg FIFA World Cup playoff in 2022.
The first leg will be held on Friday at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, with the second leg taking place on Tuesday at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.
“It’s that time of year when every Ghanaian must rise up and be counted.”
“It’s that time of year when our country’s pride is on the line,” Okraku told Joy Sports.
“It’s that time of year when Ghana should be at the World Cup, but before we can, we have a common rival in Nigeria’s Super Eagles.”
“They appear to be our little babies, but they pretend to be big boys,” he explained.
Meanwhile, Ghana has a stronger head-to-head record against Nigeria, having not lost to the Super Eagles in almost 16 years.
