.

The Super Eagles must win against the Black Stars to qualify for the World Cup and play in Qatar. The match ended in a goalless draw and the winner of the second leg will reach the World Cup. Now Ighalo explained the reasons for his team's pressure and stressed that Ghana will have nothing to lose in this game.

He said: 

“I try to talk to the younger guys that have not been there before that this is an opportunity for us to go to Qatar 2022 because you won’t know how it feels now. After your football career, you will understand what it means to play in the World Cup.

“Like I said I have been there before, I know what it is and I'm looking forward by God's grace to go to another one again. Home advantage for us but we are not going to go to sleep because it's going to be a difficult and tough game.”

“Ghana are going to come all out here because they have nothing to lose now than to come out because we’re playing at home,”

Ighalo added

. “We just have to give our best 110 percent in the game on Tuesday, take our chances, fight from the start to finish until the final whistle.

“I know by God’s grace we’re going to come out victorious but we have to work hard, it's going to be a tough one but we're going to win by God’s grace.”
