Legendary Ghana defender Samuel Osei Kuffour has vowed to shave off his hair live on TV should South Africa beat Ghana in their Group C decider at the 2015 AFCON.
The Black Stars must win against Bafana Bafana to stand a chance of progress to the quarter-finals.
Ghana’s late 1-0 win over Algeria on Friday has boosted their chances of progress and are in pole position to defeat the South Africans.
Former Bayern Munich defender Samuel Osei Kuffuor says if South Africa manage to beat the Black Stars, wholly do the unthinkable.
“If Bafana [Bafana] defeats Ghana [Tuesday], I will shave my hair off LIVE on Television!!,” he tweeted.
Ghana could advance by either drawing or winning against South Africa. In the event Algeria and Senegal split points, the Desert Foxes could advance on goals aggregate but the table could turn if Avram Grant’s men score more against South Africa. In that scenario, Senegal would amass five points and would be secured.
However, an Algeria win would mean Ghana need all three points against South Africa to pull through as the Desert Foxes would go to six points, and Senegal left with four points.
Kuffuor is known to cherish his beard and hair.
