Forward Andre Ayew insists Ghana is not scared of facing Cote d’Ivoire in the finals of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars secured its place in Sunday’s grand finale in Bata after beating hosts Equatorial Guinea in a comprehensive 3-0 win on Thursday night in Malabo.

Ghana, having failed to win the African Cup for over three decades, face a good Ivorian side in the finals for a chance to make history.

Cote d’Ivoire have some of the finest players on the continent in their camp capable of spooking fear into any side up against them.

But Ghana’s leading scorer at the tournament Andre Ayew admits Sunday’s final will be tough, but is adamant the Black Stars fear no one.

“Nobody is scared of nobody,” he told

“I think it is a big game where there will be big players and it is going to be tough for everyone.

“So I believe that the better side on that day will take it.”
