Ghana and Nigeria ended their first leg of the World Cup qualifier play-offs in a goaless draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
The heavyweight battle between the two sides was one of the most anticipated games.
Both teams are hoping to secure a ticket to the World Cup.
In Ghana’s squad, Coach Otto Addo handed AS Roma teenager Felix Afena and Dennis Odoi their debut start whiles Osman Bukari also came from the bench to play his maiden game for the Ghana national team.
On other side, Coach Eguavoen also lined-up Serie A star Victor Osimhen alongside Moses Simon and Kelechi Iheanacho but they failed to record an away goal at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Ghana displayed a massive performance during the first fifteen minutes of the throttle. The Super Eagles came in strongly to mount pressure on the home side but Daniel Amartey and Alexander Djiku were brilliant at the back.
The second half saw a packed action from the two giants but the defence were hard to break for a goal.
The Super Eagles nearly had the opportunity to take a lead from the spot when Baba Idrisu was fouled at the penalty box of the Black Stars but VAR denied them the chance to stand tall.
Ghana will need to fight hard going into the second leg with clean sheet and even 1-1 draw will give the Black Stars the chance to advance to the major tournament in Qatar.
