Blackstars Make Coach Milovan Rajevac Proud Again, Tops Group G With 9 Points

The Arsenal Midfielder, Thomas Partey scored against the warriors in the World Cup Qualifiers for the second time. Three days ago, he made another goal in their match at the Cape Coast Stadium when Ghana beat the Zimbabweans 3 goals to 1.

Today, 12th October at the National Sports Stadium, Harare, he led by example by helping the blackstars walk away with a vital win pushing them to the top of group G.

Rajevac handed a starting role to Swindon Town shot stopper, Jojo Wollacott. Daniel Amartey and Baba Rahman occupied the right back and left back positions respectively. Jonathan Mensah partnered Alexander Djiku in defense.

Thomas Partey was also paired with Andre Ayew in the midfield. Jordan Ayew, Kudus Mohammed and Kamaldeen Suleman were the attacking trio with Benjamin Tetteh leading the line.

The match began at a very slow pace with both sides failing to break each other for the opening 30 minutes.

Arsenal Midfielder, Thomas Partey showed his qualities as he struck a 25 yard free kick in the roof of the net to give Ghana the lead.

In fact, Ghana nearly doubled their lead on the stroke of half time but Daniel Amartey's effort after Zimbabweans goalkeeper failed to parry a corner kick and was cleared off the line.

In the second half play, with no goals scored and 90 minutes played, Egyptian referee Amin Mohammed Omar, blowed the whistle to end the game at the National Sports Stadium, Harare.

Ghana now tops with 9 points having played 4 games and awaits the results of the South Africans and Ethiopians game.

South Africa trails Ghana by 2 points whiles Ethiopia is placed 3rd with 3 points and Zimbabwe at the bottom with 1 point.

Congratulations to the blackstars of Ghana. We hope to see more goals from them in the upcoming matches.
