Ghana had beaten Nigeria 3-2 in the first leg of the competition organised by International Federal for Skate Soccer (IFSS) and co-sponsored by AfriGlobal Group and Binatone.

Speaking after the game, IFSS President, Sunil Lalvani said he was satisfied with the quality displayed by both teams, adding that the federation will use the Nigerian event as the yardstick for the African tournament to be hosted by Ghana.

“It was a very competitive game between Nigeria and Ghana. When Nigeria lost 3-2 to Ghana in the first game, I expected Nigeria to fight back and they did just that. Nigeria was full of confidence and dominated Ghana. The federation is committed to doing everything for the game of Skate,” Lalvani said.

In his own reaction, the Group General Manager, AfriGlobal, Maneesh Garg praised both teams for an entertaining evening, adding, “I have never seen this kind of energy exhibited by these players in my life.
