2022 WCQ: $12 million for Ghana if Black Stars overcome Nigeria task

Ghana will earn twelve million dollars should the senior national team, Black Stars qualify for the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar.

The Black Stars will play the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a two-legged tie to seal one of the five slots for African teams in the World Cup.

Fifa will award $2million for teams that qualify to the group stages of the World Cup and $10million for preparations before the tournament kick-starts.

Ghana will battle it out with their West African neighbours on March 25 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium before a return leg on March 29 in Abuja’s Moshood Abiola Stadium.

After an abysmal campaign at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, the Black Stars will have to redeem themselves against a tough opponent in Nigeria.

The Super Eagles began the AFCON with wins in all three group stage games but lost to Tunisia 1-0 in the Round of 16.

As it stands, competing at the World Cup in Qatar offers both sides an opportunity to redeem their image but sadly, only one has to claim the ticket to Asia in November.

The two nations have appointed new head coaches; Otto Addo for Ghana and Emmanuel Amuneke for the Nigerians.

Amuneke qualified Tanzania to their first Afcon in 2019 and Otto Addo was the assistant to Serbian gaffer Milovan Rajevac.
