Ghana coach Rajevac discusses what the Black Stars must do to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac believes his team will require calmness to beat South Africa in their 2022 Qatar Fifa World Cup qualifier on Sunday in Cape Coast.


In the highly anticipated match, the Black Stars will face Bafana Bafana, who arrived in Ghana on Friday, and will need to win at home to claim the group's lone ticket to the playoffs.


The Black Stars are confident in their ability to produce at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday (kickoff 7 p.m.), but their Serbian coach believes they must maintain their composure.


"For tomorrow's game, we're highly focused. All we need now is the ability to plan and execute against the South Africans today" .At the pre-match press conference on Saturday night, Rajevac remarked.


Following Ghana's 1-1 tie with Ethiopia on Thursday afternoon, and South Africa's subsequent win over Zimbabwe, Bafana Bafana (13 points, +5 goal difference) now leads Group G by three points over the second-placed Black Stars (10 points, +3 difference).


If Ghana wins by a single goal against Bafana Bafana on Sunday, they will have a +4 margin in the final score, whereas South Africa would have a +4 margin (both at thirteen points).


The most goals scored inside the group is the following criterion.


The two sides, Bafana and Ghana, currently have six goals apiece, putting them in a tie for first place. With a win, the Black Stars will improve by one point and progress.
