POOR Berti Vogts. The Super Eagles new technical adviser, was left shaking his head after Nigeria put up its worst performance in recent times against a Ghanaian team that had all the field to enjoy itself.

The international friendly match, played at the 25,000 capacity Griffins Park Stadium in London, saw a boastful Nigeria flatter to deceive in the first half only to capitulate in a spate of three minutes in the second half.

The Ghanaians started the massacre in the 61st minute through returnee Laryea Kingston, who capitalised on Nigeria's sloppy defence to score for his team.

Sulley Muntari, who plays in the same club with Nigeria's Christian Obodo, Udinese, made it two barely three minutes later, to take the fight out of the hapless Eagles.

Junior Agogo, who scored his first goal for Ghana late last year, got his country's third goal in the 81st minute before Taiye Taiwo gave Nigeria its only goal of the match in the 81st minute.

Former Enyimba star, Joetex Frimpong, sealed the victory for the Black Stars in the 90th minute with his first touch of the ball.
