Muntari: Ghana look to final

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari is looking forward to the game with Nigeria this afternoon and admits he hopes Ghana make the final where they are only two games away from success.

Ghana’s Sulley Muntari says the Black Stars are keeping a cool head.

“I have maintained since we have been here that we will take one game at a time. That is what we have done so far and I think it’s the same attitude we will need.

“It may have a lot of history but it is another football game with a place at the semi-final stage at stake.”

Muntari has scored twice already for Ghana at the Nations Cup and says he will be looking to get on the score sheet again.

“I obviously will love to score but when I play for Ghana it is victory that matters. The most important thing is that the Black Stars will win.”

This is the 60th time the two countries have met, and it is hard to avoid the growing sense of optimism in the Nigeria camp that this meeting will go their way.

"We have the game plan that will ensure that we prick the eyes of the Stars to gather enough clouds to cover their glitter," Nigeria assistant coach Austin Eguavoen said.
