“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.
