Austin Eguavoen, coach of the Super Eagles, has lamented his team’s wasted chances in Friday’s goalless draw against Ghana in the first leg of a 2022 World Cup play-off in Kumasi.
Both teams fought out a tough but exciting 0-0 draw at Kumasi’s Baba Yara stadium, with the Eagles having a good chance to score an away goal.
Moses Simon had the Eagles’ greatest opportunity in the 55th minute, when he raced on to a ball from Kelechi Iheanacho but missed to shoot past the exposed Black Stars goalie.
VAR then ruled away a penalty for the Super Eagles in the 75th minute after a review revealed Ghanaian Baba Idrissu was fouled before handling the ball inside his own half.
Eguavoen, who has recorded four wins, a draw and a defeat since he replaced Gernot Rohr on an interim basis last December, admitted that the tie wasn’t over yet but was happy his side left Kumasi without a defeat.
“Ghana are a very tough team,” Eguavoen said.
