It’s arguably one of the most entertaining derbies in all the continent, the battle between Ghana and Nigeria continues, this time at the African Nations Championship in the semi-finals.
Both sides enter the match on Wednesday with just one ambition on their minds, victory over the other.
That victory will land either side in the final of the tournament exclusive to players based in their home countries and boost their pride due to the long-standing rivalry between them.
While the argument can be made for either side to win this match, Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu believes it’s a fixture with the perfect setting to light up football on the continent.
“This will go a long way to help African football when some of the best countries are meeting,” Konadu told www.ghanafa.org.
“Nigeria are one of the powerhouses of African football, one of the best countries in African football, so we only need to plan very well to meet the Nigerians.
“But I think that Africa will enjoy that match.”
Though it would have been an ideal final meeting, this mouthwatering last-four clash between the two sides will certainly produce a mixed feelings when it’s all over.
