Ghana Coach Milovan Rajevac has revealed his intentions to make striker Jordan Ayew rediscover his goal scoring boots in Tuesday’s FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifier against Zimbabwe.
The Serbian tactician who led Ghana to a 3-1 win in his first game on his second bow is hoping to get a double over the Warriors to advance the team’s course of making it to the Mundial in Qatar.
The 67 year old expects his players to react positively against the dreaded Warriors who troubled Ghana in the 1st leg in Cape Coast.
Jordan Ayew has not scored from open play for Ghana since his penalty goal against Sao Tome and Principe in AFCON qualifier match.
‘I never reveal the starting line up the day before the match because this is not the way I do my work but the goal scorers and attackers often come to crisis and in this circumstances they are trying to overcome the problem and start scoring to make their performance better.
‘We are here and we talk to him. He feels the support he gets from everybody. Whether he starts or comes as a substitute later in the game, we count on all of our players.
‘As I always say, it is important to start the match in an appropriate way and to finish it in the right way.
Milovan Rajevac has been speaking about pressure on his team’s shoulders to win that game.
‘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.’
Ghana are second in the Group with six points after beating beating Zimbabwe 3-1 at home and are just a point behind South Africa who are on top of the group.
