Looking at the current form, the crop of players in each team's camp, and the performances of both teams at the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon, it is not out of place for such an assertion.
Dumelo confident in Black Stars
But despite the obvious difference in quality of both teams, John Dumelo is adamant that the Blacks will defeat Nigeria.
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.
"There's now way Nigeria will win today's match. If they do, I John Setor Dumelo, will walk barefoot from Accra to Lagoas tomorrow morning with my ginger on my head! Super Eagles my foot," he said.
