Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has heaped praise on his players after completing a double-over Zimbabwe in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Black Stars cruised to a 3-1 win over the Warriors in the first leg tie at the Cape Coast stadium last Saturday before sealing a 1-0 victory at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Tuesday.
The victory takes Ghana to second in Group G with nine points, one point behind leaders South Africa, who also completed a double-over Ethiopia with two rounds to play in the race to finish top and advance to the next stage of qualifying.
“As you all know, this was my first camp after I came back and I have to say that I am really really grateful to everybody; my players, the medical department, the technical team, and GFA. We all did this together,” Rajevac said as quoted by 3Sports.
“I felt immense support from everybody these days so really feel happy because we managed to accomplish our mission to win these two matches and to get six points so that we can still be in contention for the World Cup.”
“This match was hard as the previous one. I want to congratulate my players for the performance and also the Zimbabwean team and coach for excellent fighting and desire.”
Only the 10 group winners progress to next March’s play-offs to decide the continent’s five representatives in Qatar.
