Ahmed Musa, the captain of the Super Eagles, has stated that playing in Kumasi’s dreaded Babayara Stadium does not intimidate the team.
The venue will host the first leg of the 2022 World Cup playoffs between Ghana and Nigeria.
Originally, the game was scheduled to take place at the Cape Coast Stadium. However, due to the poor condition of the pitch, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) made sure it was moved.
Many Ghanaians applauded the decision, believing that the Eagles, like other teams, were doomed to fail.
Despite the stadium’s historical significance, Musa expressed his belief that the three-time African champions have what it takes to win.
“We have been hearing a lot of things. How they have not lost in that stadium (Babayara).
“If you remember the 2021 AFCON qualifiers when we played in Benin Republic, they told us they have not lost there. We went there and won.
“I believe we will go there and make history by winning in Kumasi,” Musa said during Wednesday’s press conference in Abuja.
