Get the head-to-head records between traditional rivals Ghana and Nigeria at senior level.

The first real competitive match between Ghana and Nigeria took place on August 28, 1960, according to Fifa’s official website.

On that occasion, Ghana ran over Nigeria by 4 – 1 in a Fifa World Cup qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium, Accra.

The clash in 1960 was “the first-ever preliminary match south of the Sahara” according to Fifa.

In the 4 – 1 win of 1960, Edward Acquah, Edward Boateng, Aggrey Fynn and Mohamadu Salisu got Ghana’s goals while Dejo Fayemi was Nigeria’s goal scorer.

But soccer pundits say that the clash between the two biggest West African football teams dates back beyond 1960.

Records available show that the Ghana and Nigeria may have first clashed on May 28, 1950 in a friendly game in which the Red Devils of Nigeria, as they were known then, triumphed by a lone goal over Ghana.

Five years later the Nigerians suffered their biggest loss to date in the hands of their rivals when they lost 0 – 7 on October 30, 1955 in the Jalco Cup.

Nigeria’s biggest win over Ghana happened in the Kwame Nkrumah Cup on February 23, 1963 when they won 5 – 0.
