The  World  Cup  Qualifier on  September  6th will  be  a  nail –  biting  encounter  between  Black  Stars  and Chipolopolo.  Make  no  mistake,  Herve  Rennard ( Zambia’s  trainer )  is relishing  being  the  first  coach  to  take  Zambia  to  it’s  maiden  World  Cup. Rennard  said  ” we  will  fight  to  the  last  whistle “  and  with  that  tone,  that  tells  the  whole  fighting  mood  in  Zambia.

The  belief  that  Chipolopolo  could  just  make  it  past  Black  Stars  is growing  in  Zambia.  Ghana  will  be wary  of  how  dangerous  Chipolopolo  can  be. Remember  the  1.0  shock  defeat at the  2012 AFCON  and  another 1.0  defeat  in  World  Cup  Qualifier  in  Ndola.  These  results  must  be taken  seriously by  Black  Stars. Personally,  I  recall  vividly  the  last  Seoul  Olympics  Qualifier way  back  in 1987. Ghana  traveled for first  leg but crashed  2.0  at  Lusaka’s  Independence  Stadium.

 

The return in Accra  was  so  tense. Basically, the offensive  Ghana  Black  Stars who  mounted  a  sustained attack  scored through a  header presumably by  Tony  Yeaobahh and  were  looking  for  a second.  In  no  time  at  all,  Zambia  reeling  under pressure  conceded a  penalty  which  late  Efford  Chabala  heroically saved. Zambia defended  the 2.0 lead from first  Leg to qualify  to  1988  Seoul  Olympics. September  6th  has  all the ingredients  of  such  an  explosive  encounter !! Ghana must  fully  prepared  in  all  aspects including  rounding  up  all  the  best  available  men  including  Michael  Essien etc. for that historic  clash.    No  experiments  in  that clash  otherwise  it  will  be  a  disaster  for  the  hosts !!
