Ghanaian actor John Dumelo says he will walk barefoot from Accra, Ghana to Lagos if Nigeria defeat Ghana in the World Cup qualifiers match holding on Friday.

The actor boasted of Ghana’s impending victory via Instagram asserting that “there is no way Nigeria will win today’s match.”

The 38-year-old actor and politician also vowed to “walk barefoot from Accra to Lagos tomorrow morning with his ginger on his head” if Nigeria defeats Ghana tomorrow in the World Cup qualifiers match.

Ghana will match up against Nigeria in the first leg of the World Cup qualifier on March 25, 2022, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium Kumasi, Ghana.

“Super Eagles my foot” John added.

Meanwhile, Nigerian celebrities have taken to social media to advice the actor to prepare for his long walk soon.

“Start to wash your leg for that walk you need like full basket of ginger, start walking because we will win,” Sharon Ooja responded.

The South American section of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification acts as qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, to be held in Qatar, for national teams which are members of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL). A total of 4.5 slots (4 direct slots and 1 inter-confederation play-off slot) in the final tournament are available for CONMEBOL teams.

The qualification process began on 8 October 2020 and will end in 2022. Uruguay’s Luis Suárez scored the first goal of the round-robin. This was the third time Suárez had opened scoring in the group (after 2010 and 2014), as well as the fourth consecutive time a Uruguayan player had done so (Martín Cáceres scored the first goal of the 2018 process).

On 24 January 2019, the CONMEBOL Council decided to maintain the same qualification structure used for the previous six tournaments. The ten teams will play in a league of home-and-away round-robin matches.

The fixtures were determined by a draw which was held on 17 December 2019, 10:00 PYST (UTC−3), at the Bourbon Asunción Convention Hotel in Luque, Paraguay.

Originally, Brazil and Argentina were both to be drawn into either position 4 or 5 in the draw, thus ensuring that no team has to play both of them on any double matchday. However, the decision was later reversed on 16 November 2019 by the CONMEBOL Council, making the draw completely open.

The CONMEBOL Council approved the use of the video assistant referee system for the qualifiers.
