Ghana boss Otto Addo: We know what to expect of Nigeria

Ghana boss Otto Addo admits he knows what to expect of friendly opponents Nigeria.

The former Black Stars boss was reappointed last week as the country bids to qualify for the World Cup in 2026.

The West African rivals meet for the first time since 2022 where Ghana edged Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Speaking ahead of Friday's clash at Stade de Marrakech, the former Borussia Dortmund coach explained that the Super Eagles should be an open book.

Addo said on Ghanasoccernet: "I think we have observed them well, we know what to expect from them. 

"They have really, really strong and experienced players, even though I guess not all of them are here. I think they have a very, very strong squad."

Addo further explained: "We expect them to be very hard to break against the ball but also with the ball, which you saw at the African Cup of Nations, they are really, really good in offensive transmissions, they have fast players on the wings, tall players upfront who can hold the ball no matter who comes, with a really, really solid back chain so it™s going to be tough.

"But we know what we can do and we know how to play against such a host and even though they went to the final, they showed in some matches that they are vulnerable so anything can happen. I am just hoping that we get a good start and we can end this game as the winning team."
