The Black Stars travelled to Zimbabwe for the second fixture of their double header against the Warriors at the international Stadium on Tuesday after recording a 3-1 win in the game at the Cape Coast Stadium. Ghana posted a good performance against the Warriors, recording a slim 1-0 win to claim all three points at stake.
It was a very important moment for the Black Stars as they needed to win to keep the chase on Group G leaders, South Africa. Ghana’s left back, Baba Rahman was brought down on the 30th minute 20-yards to Zimbabwe’s goal area. Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey swept in a sweet free kick to put the Black Stars ahead on the 31st minute mark. The Stars held on to the lead into the first half and the entire game ending 1-0 for the Black Stars.
Black Stars head coach, Milovan Rajevac says, the most important thing is Ghana picking all three points from the game as many have criticized the national team’s lack of quality football. “This was a very tough match like I said in the beginning and it is a competitive match so both teams were competitive today and maybe we didn’t see some beautiful football today but in some situations you just have to play for the results and the results is the most important thing. “And the very short period between the two matches and tiredness and fatigue on the players.
“I’m just happy we managed to win because the results is the most important at this stage especially. “The most important thing is we got six points after these two matches and our confidence is getting higher so we are expecting the next two matches and we have to prove the point.” Milovan Rajevac said in a post match press conference.
Ghana, who are now on nine points, still believe in qualifying for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup as they trail Group G leaders, South Africa by one point. Ethiopia sit third with three points with Zimbabwe bottom of the table with one point after four matches. The Black Stars have two games to complete the qualifier; against Ethiopia on October 11 away before hosting South Africa on October 17.
