President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi has revealed that he was extremely certain that Ghana would beat DR Congo in the quarter finals of the ongoing Afcon regardless of the circumstance.
Ghana has become a constant in the semi finals of the competition since 2008 and will be hoping to end their 35 year trophy drought.
The Black Stars overcame an early scare from DR Congo to win 2-1 following goals from Jordan Ayew and Andre Ayew in the second half of the match.
The Ghana FA boss who was in good spirits could not help but share his joy with a number of pressmen after the victory.
“We are going for the trophy and nothing has changed because I haven’t seen any changes that suggest otherwise.
“When I landed I jokingly said that my absence resulted in the defeat against Egypt but now that I am around we won’t lose matches.
“I have all the amulets around,but that is on a lighter note,” he said while sharing a laugh with reporters.
“I knew that we were going to win the match,to be honest I had a certain feeling.
“I informed Palmer that we were going to score in that post.
“When the coin was tossed and we won the toss I said that the goals would come in the second half.
“There were goals in that post,” he revealed.
Ghana’s next assignment comes against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in Franceville.
