Nigeria's Sports Minister Sunday Dare has assured that the country's relationship with Ghana will remain intact irrespective of the results in the upcoming World Cup playoff.

The Super Eagles and Ghana's Black Stars battle it out for a ticket to represent Africa in the 2022 World Cup to be staged in Qatar in November.

Ghana host Nigeria in the first leg on March 25 at the 40,000 seater Baba Yara Sports Stadium before the reverse fixture four days time at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

Sunday Dare has charged Super Eagles to defeat Ghana in the play-off and qualify to the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar.

Dare admitted he is aware the team is not happy about their failure to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon. Nigeria, the best team in the group phase were shocked in the last 16 stage by Tunisia.

The Minister wants three-time African to “visit the anger” of the second-round exit when they face Ghana in late March. The winner of the two-legged tie is assured of a place in Qatar late this year for the global showpiece.

“I know you are still unhappy about the loss to Tunisia, but I want you to visit the anger of the defeat by Tunisia on Ghana. We all know about the history of the rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana in football, and this is one fixture that we must not lose,” Dare charged the team, as quoted in a publication by the NFF.
