Egypt must forget about Brazil 2014 - Heart of Lions owner Victor Ahiakpor

Egypt must forget about Brazil

Heart of Lions owner Victor Ahiakpor says Egypt should set aside any thoughts of qualifying to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, predicting victory for the Black Stars over the two- legged playoffs.

The Black Stars will host the seven-time African champions in the first leg at the Baba Yara stadium on Tuesday October 15 before the return fixture takes place on November 19 in Cairo.

The Egyptians stands in the way of the Black Stars to make a third successive appearance at the World showpiece with the two- legged ties expected to determine which country makes it to the South African nation next year.

The Pharaohs are hoping to qualify to the tournament at the expense of the four-time African champions to bring feuding factions in the current social and political unrest in the North African country together.

But Heart of Lions president Victor Ahiakpor has urged the Egyptians to forget about earning the sole ticket to the World Cup.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the team (Black Stars). Nobody can stop us from going to Brazil, mark my words,” Ahiakpor told Happy FM

“Egypt should forget about Brazil 2014. It’s unfortunate that they are meeting us. We are not going to watch the tournament in Brazil on television. We'll be deeply involved.

“I don’t know why some people are skeptical about our chances. We’re beating them home and away.

“The days of playing tricks to outwit opponent are over for the Egyptians. We’re now in modern times.

“Let us face it. We have a quality team as compared to theirs. We have absolute trust in the players, the coach and Ghanaians to see us through.

“We are a very religious nation and I believe the Egyptians you see them today, you will see them no more,” he sounded biblical.

The Black Stars will take on lower division side Asokwa Deportivo in a friendly on Friday as coach Kwesi Appiah sharpens his arsenals ahead of the must win game on Tuesday.

The winner of the aggregrate score will qualify to the World Cup in Brazil 2014.

    I think Egypt deserve to go to the worldcup because it feels like there unbeatable and I have a feeling that Ghana is gonna lose to Egypt in Kumasi hands down.......if Ghana doesn't make it the fans are gonna talk shit all day about the coach but hey Egypt probably gonna be one of African representative.

Where gonna witness this in Kumasi were Ghana is gonna get defeated by Egypt like wat happen in Angola taken the cup away from us in our own eyes....... Sorry Ghana wait till another 4yrs in Russia.

    “I don’t know why some people are skeptical about our chances. We’re beating them home and away. Imagine such a foolish statement from a foolish man. Anyway, talk is cheap. There is a Nigerian pidgin adage that goes thus "if you use mouth drive motor you non go get accident"...... Dream on Gaynaians. NIGERIANS are watching
