Published on: 26 June 2011

Nigeria U23 coach Augustine Eguavoen has warned Ghana that they will score in Accra when the two sides clash in the second-leg of the All African Games qualifier.

The Dream Team fought back from a goal down to defeat the Black Meteors 3-1 in Benin City on Saturday in the first leg of the final qualifier for the competition to be held in Maputo.

Ghana's only goal scored in the game give the Black Meteors a glimmer of hope in the second leg.

The Ghanaians only need a 2-0 win to qualify Eguavoen is keen to see his boys exploit their first leg advantage.

“It’s unfortunate that they (Ghana) scored but nothing stops us from scoring over there,” Eguavoen said.

Ghana fielded a strong team with six players already members of the country’s top team.

The two sides will clash in the second leg in Accra in two weeks' time.
