Black Stars of Ghana's head coach, Otto Addo, has admitted that his side was lucky against the Super Eagles in the second leg of their World Cup play-off on Tuesday evening.

The Ghanaians qualified on away goals after playing a 1-1 draw at the MKO Abiola Stadium after goals from Thomas Partey and William Troost-Ekong ensured both sides share the spoils but not the qualification ticket.

Reacting, Addo was quoted by GhanaSoccerNet as saying, “I’m really delighted, exhausted, it was a tough match and we fought our way through.

“We had big problems, especially in the first half, and through some changes, the players gave their tactics very well and still they [the Nigerians] had some good chances.

“Our goalkeeper was there when we needed him and we had a little bit of luck also because if you see the chances the Nigerians were better.

“I feel a bit pity for them but this is football, sometimes and we fought our way through.”
