“We played Ghana twice as a build up to this competition. Both teams are very strong but we are fit, tactically astute and mentally ready.
“The one team that is stronger psychologically will prevail. Ghana is strong and a matured side but we will find a way to prevail.”
Nduka played down on suggestions his side was favourite for the match. ” I do think we are favourites. We are just like any other team in the competition.
” If Ghana could get to this point and lose to Mali and for Senegal to reach this level means any team could win this tournament.”
Ghana and Nigeria have met six times at this stage with the Black Satellites prevailing four times.
