History Will Play No Part In Ghana vs Nigeria – Akpeyi

Nigeria and Kaizer Chiefs custodian Daniel Akpeyi insists Ghana’s better record will play no part as the rivals battle for a World Cup ticket.

The Black Stars have defeated the Super Eagles 25 times in the 56 meetings while their rivals have claimed wins on 12 occasions. 19 games have ended in draws.

On Friday, March 25, Ghana will host Nigeria at the Baba Yara Stadium aiming at getting an advantage.

“For me, history does not really work for football. What works for football is the preparation for today,” Akpeyi said as quoted by IOL.

“Currently, we are doing well and we have been to the last three World Cups. This is not going to be any different. It is not going to be a walk in the park but we are going to give our heart out there.”

“We have a crop of good players who are able to help Nigeria qualify for Qatar. Ghana is also a strong team, there has been a rivalry between the countries on many things. Football is a big part of this and at the end of the day, it is the team that prepares very well and gets ready to take their chances and defend well. This is the team that will qualify.”
