One of Ghana's football legends Abedi Pele Ayew is optimistic the Black Stars will triumph in their Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final clash against arch-rivals Nigeria. Speaking to the BBC, he said Ghana has the men who will stand up and be counted on the day.
Nigeria take on the hosts in Accra tomorrow with history on their side after a decade of dominance in big events. He said he is not worried because Nigeria have doubts. Ayew said the Nigerians stumbled against Mali and Cote d'Ivoire Coast and they will again.
The three-time African Player of the Year and former captain of the Black Stars helped his side to an epic victory over the Super Eagles in the semi-finals of the 1992 Nations Cup. An inspirational performance and goal from the man dubbed 'Pele' led the Black Stars to a two-one victory after they had gone behind early in the first half.
And this time round, Ayew feels the result will be the same when Ghana take to the field, in front of the home fans in Accra, saying, the result can only be a Black Stars win.
