Don’t miss the friendly match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Black Stars of Ghana.

The friendly match on Friday between Nigeria and Ghana, two of Africa’s biggest teams, will take place at the Marrakech Stadium.

While the Super Eagles performed admirably to reach the final of the Africa Cup of Nations last month, the trophy ultimately went to the hosts, Ivory Coast.

Nigeria is currently preparing for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, and coach Jose Peseiro will undoubtedly use the March match to try out as many players as possible.

Despite the absence of Victor Osimhen, Ademola Lookman, Alex Iwobi, and Wilfried Ndidi are all expected to feature as they have all been selected for the squad.

Match Preview between Nigeria and Ghana

In contrast, the Black Stars did not perform well at the main event in Ivory Coast, with the team failing to advance to the round of 16.

Nigeria is expected to demonstrate its worth on the field as they are a stronger team than Ghana.

Brighton right-back Tariq Lamptey is back from injury, which is good news for Otto Addo, the new coach of Ghana.

First call-ups have been given to David Akologo, Ibrahim Osman, Nathaniel Adjei, and Diomande Mohammed.

After the Africa Cup of Nations, this will be the first international match for the West African team.

The Black Stars progressed to the group stage, while the Super Eagles reached the final but were defeated by the hosts, Ivory Coast.

Ghana Preview Under the guidance of new manager Otto Addo, Ghanaians will look to start afresh. Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign was incredibly disappointing, even in the group stage.

With Otto Addo back in charge, Ghana will aim to defeat the dominant Nigerian team to begin their new era on a positive note.

Nigeria Preview Nigeria will also face Ghana in the match under new management.

Despite a commendable performance, goalkeeper coach Jose Peseiro chose to leave the country after the devastating outcome of the AFCON final.

With a first call-up, the African nation has chosen to give many potential players their debuts.

Central defender Benjamin Tainimu has been called up for the first time in his career, joining promising players like Tyronne Ebuehi, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, and Nathan Tella.

Nigeria’s defense will be led by Luton Town’s Gabriel Osho, who has strong leadership abilities.

For a somewhat timid Luton Town team, the Nigerian has been one of the few bright spots of the season.

Nigeria vs Ghana History

The two countries have faced each other four times since 2014.

It is interesting to note that only one of the four matches ended in a draw, with Ghana winning comfortably by a score of 2-0.

After being eliminated by Ghana for a spot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Nigeria will look to ensure a resounding victory using their recent outstanding performance in Africa.

Schedule and Where to Watch Nigeria vs Ghana The match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Black Stars of Ghana will be played in Marrakech, Morocco.

The match will kick off at 5 p.m. Nigerian time and will also be broadcast on DSTV and the official social media platforms of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).
