With Just Hours To The Very Important Game Against Ghana, A Nigerian Player Spits Fire All The Way From The US


As the battle for a place at the World Cup showpiece in Qatar this year takes center stage today at the MKO Abiola National Stadium between hosts, Nigeria and guests, Ghana, a Nigerian utility player, Udechukwu Ezekwem, popularly known as Ude, has given reasons why the Nigeria Super Eagles will come out winners and book their ticket to Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Udechukwu Ezekwem, who plays his club football in USA for USL 2, Oakland Roots SC, says: “After perfecting the Coaches’ tactical play by getting a valuable draw at away to a dreaded Black Stars team at their backyard in Kumasi, Ghana, I don’t see Ghana posing a threat to Nigeria’s appearance at the Mundial later this year in Qatar, especially as they will be playing on a very good pitch at home in Abuja.”

Ude, as he’s fondly called by admirers of the beautiful game in the US, continues

“Nigeria, with a plethora of world class talents across all departments of the pitch, couple with the massive support they will be getting from the ever supportive football fans at home, Ghana stands no way without not getting beaten after 90 minutes today.

” Although, the first leg ended goaless, but firepower should be expected from the attack of a Nigerian team that possess the fearsome and dreaded strike force in Africa which includes: Victor Osimhen, Emmanuel Denis, Ademola Lookman, Moses Simon, Umar, Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa, Odion Ighalo, Chukwueze. How can you stop these massive goal poachers?”

Udechukwu Ezekwem, a product of Jazzy Stars Football Club of Jos, Plateau State, currently plays for Oakland Roots SC, a USL 2 club, after playing for other clubs like MD United and Reading United all in the United States of America, gave 3 assists for Reading in 8 games the last time out even from his deep role as a right full back and a central defensive midfielder.

It would be recalled that the Nigeria Super Eagles forced the Black Stars of Ghana to a goaless draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Friday.
A win for the Coach Austin Eguavoen tutored team is more than enough to qualify them for the World Cup in Qatar come November this year.

Nigeria, currently placed 32nd in the latest FIFA ranking, will equal Cameron’s record for the most represented African nation in the history of the World Cup with seven appearances.
