Nigeria vs. Ghana: Whose Jollof is the best?

The Black Stars are still in shock following their early elimination from the AFCON 2023, and their matchup against Ghana, dubbed the “Jollof derby” on social media, is usually intense.

After Chris Hughton’s departure, Addo returned to his position. The West African team had two consecutive early exits from the finals, with no wins during the group stage.

The 48-year-old has been brought back to lead the four-time African champions to the 2022 World Cup, and the team’s federation is eager to see a similar result as he reacquaints himself with the position before officially joining at the conclusion of the European season.

Ghana has not won in their last five games, having lost five of them, while the Super Eagles have only lost one of their last seven games played.

Ghana has won two of the last five head-to-head encounters, with the remaining three ending in draws. The Super Eagles’ most recent victory over the Black Stars came in the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations, where they prevailed 1-0.

Nigeria’s top performers at AFCON 2023, Victor Osimhen and William Troost-Ekong, are absent, while Ola Aina and Zaidu Sanusi are absent. Wilfred Ndidi returns to the squad after missing the Cup of Nations due to injury, and Nathan Tella could start. Ademola Lookman’s impact as a forward is undeniable, and he hopes to play in a similar role if George retains a three-man defense. Ghana’s star Mohammed Kudus has not inspired the side in Cote d’Ivoire. Jordan Ayew guarantees industry, and Antoine Semenyo could potentially hurt Nigeria’s backline. Thomas Partey misses out due to an injury with Premier League-contending Arsenal.
