Following the outcome of the Ghana vs. Nigeria football game which ended in a goaless draw, Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo, has again mocked Nigeria’ Super Eagles, saying he was confident they would not win while referring to them as super chickens.
Prior to the game on Friday, Dumelo vowed to walk barefoot from Accra to Lagos if the Eagles won the first leg playoff fixture of their 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against the Black Stars of Ghana.
However, when the game, which took place at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, Ashanti on Friday, ended in a goalless draw, the actor turned politician took to his Instagram page to say that he w ould have indeed walked if his country lost the game as he is aan of his words.
He said: “Dear super chickens, I was very confident you won’t win this game. But before you leave for Naija I have free ginger from my farm for you.
“I know some people wanted to see me walk from Accra to Lagos this morning if Nigeria had won, I am a man of my words. I would have walked but spiritually, I knew what I was saying,” he wrote.
The second leg of the qualifiers is set to hold at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Tuesday.
