Ghana’s Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Alexander Ntrakwa, has charged the Black Stars to replicate last Saturday’s FIFA World Cup qualifier performance against Zimbabwe in the return fixture today.

Kick-off is 1pm, and it is expected to be played at the National Stadium in Harare.

The Black Stars posted a 3-1 win over the Warriors in Cape Coast to breathe life into their Qatar 2022 World Cup campaign, and according to the Ambassador, his compatriots must go the extra mile to pick all the points to further boost their chances.

The Ambassador gave the team a warm welcome when they arrived on Sunday evening, and advised the Stars to approach the game with all seriousness.

“After they scored the penalty, their commentators here said, the team has ambushed a plan and they will display it to the Black Stars in the away fixture,” he told the team on arrival.

He added, “I want to congratulate you for winning the first game. We were here watching, the Zimbabweans came to Ghana with a vision, but thanks to God that didn’t materialise and we won the game.

“We have to commit our all-in tomorrow’s (today) game because they have hatched a plan against us.”
