Black Stars of Ghana coach, Otto Addo, has explained why his team could not overcome the Super Eagles in the 2022 World Cup qualifying playoff first leg tie in Kumasi on Friday.
Despite massive home support inside the Baba Yara Stadium, the Black Stars could not break down a resolute Eagles side.
They were lucky not to even go behind as the Eagles had few opportunities to score but were let down due to poor finishing.
With less than 20 minutes left to play the Eagles were awarded a penalty which was eventually overturned by the referee after consulting VAR.
And in his post-match presser, Addo admitted his players made few mistakes despite getting the upper hand in the early part of the game.
“First of all, we did well even though we made some mistakes but we started well, there was just a little bit of fatigue and it made Nigeria come into the game more.”
It is still all to play for as both teams will battle it out in the second leg on Tuesday inside the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
