Head coach of the Black Stars, Milovan Rajevac says there is the need to handle the pressure that comes with the return World Cup qualifying fixture against Zimbabwe.
The Black Stars are guest of Zimbabwe in Harare after posting a 3-1 win over the Warriors at the Cape Coast Stadium last Saturday in the first of two double header clash of the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Mohammed Kudus, Thomas Partey and captain Andre Ayew’s goals with Knowledge Musona’s equalizer ensured the Black Stars were 3-1 winners.
A must win against Zimbabwe in Harare is necessary to keep the hopes of qualifying for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup very much alive.
Black Stars head coach, Milovan Rajevac believes, the pressure that comes with the game will be well dealt with on the match day at 1:00pm local time on Tuesday.
“In this kind of job and especially in this kind of situations you have to learn how to manage the pressure. For us it is a must win match and every next match is the most important and hardest match so let’s take one step at a time.
“We have confidence and so we will learn how to handle the pressure because if you cannot handle pressure, you can’t succeed in this game. It is something that we have to cope with and I think we will do that successfully.” Milovan Rajevac said.
Ghana has six points from three Group G games, one less than leaders, South Africa. Ethiopia follow in third on three points with Zimbabwe on one point.
Ghana have a game against Zimbabwe today and will next engage Ethiopia on 11th November away and South Africa at home on November 14 to complete the qualifier. The top country in the group qualifies for the next stage.
