Nigeria's Kanu warns Ghana that Super Eagles will avenge defeat
Nigeria legend Nkwankwo Kanu says the Super Eagles will end their recent defeats to Ghana when the two sides meet on 9 August in an international friendly.
Last Sunday, the Dream Team V were eliminated from the All Africa Games qualifier by Ghana’s Olympic team.
The Black Meteors overturned a 3-1 deficit to beat Nigeria 2-0 in Kumasi and go through to this year’s final in Maputo, Mozambique on away goals.
Two months ago, the Super Falcons, having played out a lacklustre 1-1 draw in Abuja, slumped to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Ghana’s Under-20 ladies.
This means Ghanaian teams have knocked out Nigeria from both the women and men’s football competition at the All Africa Games scheduled for September.
Looking ahead to the international friendly in London, Kanu said:
”Don’t worry, the Super Eagles will get them and it will not be Ghana on top anymore but Nigeria.”
The Super Eagles face Fifa 2010 World Cup quarter-finalists Ghana at Vicarage Road.
The last time the two nations met in London, the Black Stars won 4-1 in 2007.
