Ghana/Nigeria: Reactions – Nigeria vs Ghana

Florence Omagbemi (Head Coach, Nigeria)

The game was great and both teams played well. Ghana gave us a good match and it was an impressive game. The foul on Asisat Oshoala was a clear penalty in my own assessment. I was disappointed in the referee not making the call. We were not over confident after the 6-0 victory over Mali. Today, we played against a good team and it was a good match by both teams. A draw (1-1) is not a bad result. We played well and were not expecting to draw. I’m looking forward to the game with Kenya and get a good result. We just want to play convincingly against Kenya and hopefully top the group.

Yussif Basigi (Head Coach, Ghana)

We are not happy to draw, but it is good to draw when the need arises. Ghana versus Nigeria can go either way. If for any reason we draw, we have to take it in good faith. Against Mali, Nigeria opened up but against us it was very close. The competition is still on. We have to approach the Mali with all the seriousness to win and qualify convincingly.
