Amoah/Kufuor in Starting Line-up
Despite media reports that AS ROMA based defender Sammy Osei Kufuor will not feature for Ghana against Nigeria in the first game in Group D at the Port Said today, Head Coach of the Black Stars Ratomir Dujkovic has denied the rumors insisting that the experienced Ghanaian defender will definitely feature for the Black Stars.
It was speculated in the media that Sammy Kufuor will not feature due to a kncok he suffered during training but Doya remains confident that the player will start.
He also emphasised that Borussia Dortmund based striker Matthew Amoah will start alongside Enyimba's Joetex Frimpong in today's game. Today's crucial encounter has been predicted by many an analyst that it will determine how far the two teams will progress in the competition
