According to him, Nigeria can never win against the Black Stars in Kumasi and it is only a dream if they think so.

"The Super Eagles should stop dreaming. They can’t win their game in Ghana. If they do, I will..."

After the initial tweet, Dumelo shared a screenshot vowing that he will walk barefooted from Accra to Lagos tomorrow with ginger on his head if Nigeria wins.
