AFCON Title Ambition For Ghana Black Stars A Difficult Job Under Milovan Rajevac?

Concerns have been articulated towards Ghana’s chances of lifting next year’s Africa Cup of Nations. The main worry has to do with a formidable team to lead the charge. Former Black Stars players continue to express varied thoughts as to opportunities available to the team to make an impact in the continental showpiece. 

Best player for 1978 Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boy Abdul Razak has shared similar sentiments, indicating whether Ghana stands the chance of annexing glory in Cameroon. 

Milovan Rajevac made a return to the helm of affairs for Ghana, and his second stint with Ghana, has received different analyses and interpretations, which could only be exonerated by time. 

Having assumed duty exactly a week, he is expected to raise a boisterous team which has the tenacity to conquer remaining countries in the global competition. 

With the tournament set to kick off in January, the Serbian tactician has barely two months to put together a squad which could withstand the test of time, play their heart out as if their necks are on the edge of a knife. The two moths ahead is plausible for Milovan Rajevac to go according to targets. 

What presents a better platform for Milovan Rajevac is the World Cup qualifiers which come ahead of Africa Cup of Nations. 

In this month, that is October, double-header takes place for the team. Playing home and away to Zimbabwe is a major assignment due to how volatile and slippery Ghana’s group has become. November gives another two international matches in World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa. Such crucial fixtures cannot be overlooked in building a winsome side for the Afcon. 

Along the line, those four games emphasizes the point that, Milovan Rajevac can use that as a conduit to raise good side. Coming out with stronger side is a major stride in pulling off Afcon laurel ambitions. 

Milovan Rajevac although has explained the direction of the team for the time being, where the focus lays on World Cup qualifiers, but his experience will guard him to take advantage of that to carve out a good side. 

He can bring his Afcon experience and exposure to bear next year, but that must sync with parading unvanquished or invincible side. Is a difficult task but surmountable with quality material which Ghana can boast of. 

Milovan Rajevac gives glimpse of hope because of his handiwork in 2010 but that must come with caution since the game has evolved over the years.
