Ghana coach, Yusif Basigi, has revealed his side wanted to win against Nigeria in Wednesday’s Africa Women Nations Cup Group B match but settled for a 1-1 draw.
The Black Queens conceded first on 19 minutes when Cynthia Adobia turned Asisat Oshoala’s shot into her own net. But Ghana equalized from the spot three minutes from the break through captain Elizabeth Addo, who was fouled by Halimat Ayinde inside the box.
He said: “We are not happy to draw, but it is good to draw when the need arises. Ghana versus Nigeria can go either way. If for any reason we draw, we have to take it in good faith,” Basigi said in a post match conference.
“Against Mali, Nigeria opened up but against us it was very close. The competition is still on. We have to approach the Mali with all the seriousness to win and qualify convincingly.”
