It’s Ghana who have advanced to the World Cup finals in Qatar in December with a hard-earned 1-1 draw against Nigeria, as they qualify through the away goal rule.

Ghana took the lead early on after Arsenal’s Thomas Partey fired in a strike from the edge of the box which went through Francis Uzoho in the Nigerian goal. A goalkeeper error giving the away side the lead early on.

Nigeria then took control of the game and equalised after Ademola Lookman was brought down in the box by Dennis Odoi. The decision went to VAR and William Troost-Ekong made no mistake from the penalty spot.

Nigeria thought they’d taken the lead in the 34th minute but were aggrieved when VAR ruled out Victor Osihmen’s strike for offside.

Nigeria dominated the second half with 60% possession and managed nine shots but only one managed to bring Joe Wollacott into action.

Ghana held on for five minutes of added time as they advanced to the World Cup finals for the first time since 2014.
