11th October 2011- Friendly, Ghana 0 Nigeria 0 (played at Vicarage Road)

BBC SportNigeria and Ghana failed to find a cutting edge as the African rivals fluffed a series of chances in a 0-0 draw in a friendly in London on Tuesday.

GhanaWeb: The fans took the plaudits as rivals Ghana and Nigeria battled out a rather uninspiring goalless draw in tonight’s international friendly at Vicarage Road, with an estimated live TV audience of 30 million watching on from across Africa and beyond.

Hornblogger: I went to the England-Ghana friendly in March and it was one of the most entertaining football crowds I’ve ever been part of.  The Ghanian supporters celebrated corners, free kicks, passes and even throw-ins with ever increasing enthusiasm.  Although I was supporting England I very much hoped Ghana would score just to experience their goal reaction and it lived up to all expectations when they equalised in the closing minutes.   So I wasn’t going to miss the chance to experience that kind of atmosphere at the ground I know and love the most.
