Ex-international Tijani Babaginda has expressed his optimism at the Super Eagles picking the 2022 World Cup ticket if coach Austin Eguavoen picks the right strikers against Ghana.
The Super Eagles will confront the Black Stars of Ghana in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers later in the month.
The Cape Coast Stadium in Ghana will host the first leg of the two matches to decide the winner of the World Cup place.
The return leg between the West African rivals will take place on Tuesday, March 29 at the Abiola National Stadium Abuja.
However, Babaginda thinks that Eguavoen may have a difficult time selecting the Ghanaian players due to the formidable form of Victor Osimhen and Odion Ighalo.
“There is no doubt that the current strikers in the Super Eagles are not doing badly in Europe. The likes of Osimhen, Ighalo, Sadiq and others are banging the goals for their respective clubs and it’s a sign of good things to come for the team,” Babaginda said.
”Again, this will definitely give Eguavoen a serious headache in terms of who to select for the game against Ghana.
If he gets the right strikers to start, then the team will pick the ticket for Qatar.”
Meanwhile, Eguavoen admits he is embarrassed with the quality of players in his squad but he is not fazed by the task of selecting the right players for the two ties
