Ex- Super Eagles and Ajax  winger, Tijani Babangida has said that coach Samson Siasia should use the Ghana match to prepare for the Antananarivo Nations Cup showdown next month.

The Atlanta ’96 Olympic Gold medalist said he knows that the game is a friendly but Siasia’s Eagles must not lose knowing that the Ghanaians are not seeing it as a friendly match.

He also charged Siasia to use his best legs in the tie as it will help him shape his plans for Madagascar  on September 3.

“I think the game will prepare the team for our next big game against Madagascar so they must not  play it as friendly. For me, the game is a friendly but we must not lose the  game.

“Playing against Ghana is always a battle, putting into consideration the result of the U-23 male and female matches. If we take it as friendly, I do not think the Ghanaians will be seeing it that way.
