Ghana were able to atop holders Nigeria after a one-all draw in the second Group B match played on Wednesday in Limbe as the two sides went square on four points after two rounds of matches.
The match, which to many, has been the best so far, was characterised by a lot of tactical display from both sides. Coming into the game after bashing Mali in the first game 6-0, the Ghanians were determine not to see the same fate befall the.
Although they stopped the Nigerians, to coach Yussif Basigi of Ghana, he is not satisfied with the draw, as he believed his side should have won.
“We are not happy to draw, but it is good to draw when the need arises. Ghana versus Nigeria can go either way. If for any reason we draw, we have to take it in good faith.
Against Mali, Nigeria opened up but against us it was very close.
The competition is still on. We have to approach the Mali with all the seriousness to win and qualify convincingly.” Basigi told reporters.
