Nigeria further solidified their lead in the dying minutes with a well-executed team move, culminating in a composed finish by substitute Ademola Lookman.

Despite a late penalty awarded to Ghana, expertly converted by captain Jordan Ayew, the Eagles held firm, securing a memorable victory.

Dessers, reflecting on George’s tactical approach, emphasised pressing aggressively and creating more scoring opportunities, a departure from previous defensive strategies.

He expressed his belief that such a proactive style aligns with the ethos of the Super Eagles, admitting to the importance of relentless pressing to generate chances.

“He wanted us to press more, be aggressive. Then we can attack more, we can create more chances, that’s a good thing and I think that’s the way Super Eagles should play,” Dessers remarked, praising the shift towards a more attacking mindset under Finidi’s leadership.

The Super Eagles will now prepare for their next international friendly game against Mali later tomorrow.
