Nigeria had to settle for a 0-0 draw in Ghana on Friday after VAR overruled a decision to award the visitors a penalty in the first leg of a World Cup play-off.

A review of the decision in the closing stages of the West African showdown in Kumasi found that Ghana midfielder Iddrisu Baba was fouled before he handled the ball.
