Renowned football historian Oyedegyi is of the view anything other than a win will spell doom for Ghana on the road to Brazil 2014.
The Black Stars will play Sudan on Sunday in a 2014 World Cup qualifier at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
Oyedegyi, who doubles as an administrator of Tudu-based Mighty Jet, was optimistic the four-time African champions will carry the day at the end of proceedings.
“I don’t foresee that happening, I am 100% sure we will triumph over the Sudanese come Sunday,” Oyedegyi told A1 Sports.
He was also pleased with the invitation of Greuther Furth left-back Baba Rahman given that his height will add balance to the Ghanaian defence.
“Rahman will contribute immensely to the game considering his height. When the central defenders surge forward he can take cover for them.
“He can also help defend against any goal when there is a corner kick against us,” he added.
The Ghanaians find themselves in a position where any slip will narrow their chances of making it three successive World Cups since the Chipolopolo of Zambia are currently on top of the group with three clear points difference between them and the second-placed team, Ghana.
