Retired Nigerian football legend Jay-Jay Okocha has said Nigeria does not deserve to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup if they can’t defeat Ghana at home.

According to him, the Super Eagles will have no excuse if they fail to get the better of the Black Stars and pick a ticket to Qatar.

Ghana and Nigeria played out an entertaining goalless draw in the first leg of the 2022 World Cup qualifying playoffs at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Both sides were evenly matched in 90 minutes, leaving all to play for in the second leg at the Mashood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

“If we cannot win our match at home, then we don’t deserve to be at the 2022 World Cup, Okocha said, as quoted by Footballghana.

“We must win to qualify and we will be playing in front of our fans. What other advantage do we need?”

Meanwhile, Okocka recently disclosed that the first thing that comes to his mind when he thinks about Ghana football is “underachievers.”
