Ghana booked their place at the World Cup following a pulsating 1-1 draw against Nigeria at the Mashood Abiola Stadium on Tuesday evening.
A first-half strike by Thomas Partey was cancelled out by a penalty from Super Eagles captain William Troost-Ekong as both teams shared the spoils in Abuja.
The result sealed the Black Stars’ qualification on away goals after the first leg ended goalless at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
The various clubs of Ghana’s Europe-based players, therefore, took to social media to congratulate their stars for qualifying for the World Cup.
Borussia Dortmund were full of praise for their assistant manager Otto Addo, stating: “Congrats to Otto Addo and the @GhanaBlackstars on qualifying for the World Cup! A true Ghanaian legend.
“Otto was appointed as Ghana’s interim head coach for their World Cup qualifying matches and helped lead them to victory!”
Arsenal also congratulated Thomas Partey: “Scores a crucial goal. Qualifies for World Cup. Congrats Thomas Partey and Team Ghana.”
Meanwhile, Dutch giants Ajax were not left out, axing lyrical about Mohammed Kudus: “You’ve done it. Mohammed Kudus to the World Cup.”
Goalkeeper Joojo Wollacot’s club, Swindon Town, also had this to say: “He stuck with us back in the summer, and now he’s off to a World Cup. Freaking amazing. Our guy.”
Nigeria’s 1-1 draw with Ghana sees them miss out on World Cup qualification for the first time since 2006. The Black Stars, though, have now qualified for their fourth World Cup after missing out on the last edition.
