Ghana suffer 2-1 defeat to Nigeria in friendly: social media erupts with reactions

The Black Stars of Ghana faced a 2-1 defeat against their West African rivals, the Super Eagles of Nigeria, in a friendly match played in Marrakech on Friday afternoon.

The game, which was part of Ghana’s preparations for future assignments, began at 4:00 pm and offered fans a sneak peek into the performance of the national squad under the guidance of coach Otto Addo.

Nigeria took an early lead through a penalty, with striker Cyriel Dessers successfully deceiving Ghanaian goalkeeper Ati Zigi. The first half ended with a narrow 1-0 lead in favor of the Super Eagles.

The second half saw a significant turn of events when Ghanaian defender Jerome Opoku was given his marching orders in the 56th minute, leaving his team to play with 10 men. The numerical disadvantage proved costly as Ademola Lookman extended Nigeria’s lead to 2-0.

In the dying moments of the game, Jordan Ayew managed to convert a penalty for Ghana, but it was too little, too late. The final whistle blew with Nigeria securing a 2-1 victory.
