Ghana's No. 1

Derek Boateng glances at Sudan win

Published on: 02 September 2011

Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng has declared victory over Sudan in next month's final Group I 2012 Nations Cup qualifier.

The Black Stars beat Swaziland 2-0 on Friday night to go three points above the Nile Crocodiles but the North Africa can catch up if they dispatch Congo.

Sudan held Ghana to a shock goalless at the Baba Yara Stadium last October and are also yet to lose a match in the qualifiers.

Ghana have 13 points with a healthy goal difference of 10 and Sudan on 10 points with one game in hand and a goal difference of plus six.

A keenly anticipated battle is expected in Khartoum for the final qualifier but Boateng believes the 2010 Fifa World Cup quarter-finalists hold the aces to win.

"We are going there to win. We winners and we always want to win and we are going there for a great game so we will win,'' Boateng claimed.

The FC Dnipro player who put up a man-of-the match performance hopes his goodish display against Swaziland will have a positive impact at club level.

"Yeh,it's going to give me a lot of encouragement and confidence with my club and I can't wait to play the next game for Ghana again," he added.
