Ghana Vs Nigeria: Black Stars will clip Eagles wings - Ex-Coach

Nigeria Vs Ghana match 2014 CHAN: Legendary Ghanaian coach Emmanuel Kwesi Afranie insists the hype that has characterized today's semi-final showdown between the Black Stars and Ghana will amount to nothing and tips his native country to scale the hurdle.

The two West African rivals will go at each other in the second semi-final game at the ongoing CHAN tournament in Bloemfontein.

"This game isn't any different from other semi-final games. Why is there fear and panic surrounding this game? Before the DR Congo game, people were pessimistic about our chances but we beat them 1-0,

"We tend to always overstate the importance of these games. The noise about this game should stop. We will beat Nigeria." he said in an interview with Sena Radio.

"We have conceded only one goal at the tournament which is one of the best at the tournament [Zimbabwe is the other team to have conceded only once too]. That's credit to our defence and goalkeeper, Stephen Adams."
