Actor and Politician John Dumelo, like many Ghanaians, seem to have an abundance of hope in the senior national football team, Black Stars, ahead of the 2022 World Cup Qualifier match against Nigeria.
In a tweet, Mr Dumelo told his followers the Nigerian national team do not stand a chance against Ghana in the game on Friday, March 25.
The actors suggested the Super Eagles cannot possibly win the game. However, in the event they do, John Dumelo said he would walk barefoot from Accra, the capital city of Ghana to Lagos, the capital city of Nigeria, some 463 km away from Ghana.
That is not all, the actor added he would carry his ginger – he harvests on his farms – on his head for the journey.
“Super Eagles my foot!” John Dumelo wrote.
Ghana and Nigeria are battling for a spot in the 2022 World Cup expected to be held at Qatar.
Ghana will play Nigeria in the 1st leg on Friday, March 25, 2022, at 19:30GMT at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi. They will then travel four days later to Abuja for the second leg at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium.
The actor is not the only Ghanaian excited about the match. Former Black Stars player Asamoah Gyan called on the players to make Ghana proud.
“The nation is fully behind you,” he added in a tweet.
Meanwhile, Head coach of the Black Stars, Otto Addo, has revealed the players are in good condition ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifier playoff against Nigeria.
Addo, who is set to lead the team as the head coach for the first time believes his men are gunning to go in Kumasi.
“I have had enough time. The players are ready and in good shape. We have done a lot in training and I hope that we can show what we have done to Ghanaians,” the former Black Stars player told the media on Thursday.
The gaffer also calmed the fears and scepticism amongst the supporters, adding that is normal to feel that away ahead of a clash of this nature.
