The shot-stopper says the Chipolopolo have been “touched by the blessings of God” and are positive that the Black Stars will fall at their own backyard on Friday

The first-choice goalkeeper of Zambia Kennedy Mweene said God will intervene to ensure victory for his side as they face Ghana on Friday in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

The 29-year-old told Bolgatanga-based GBC Ura Radio that even though beating Ghana at their own backyard will not come easy, they will put in a great deal of effort to complement the favour that God will bestow on them in Kumasi.

“Sometimes our wishes are not God wish. When the right time has come for you even if there are hindrances, they cannot stand on your way, so for us, I think we can see light at the end of the tunnel,” Mweene said.

“For us as Zambians we believe that this time we have been touched by the blessings of God and we are positive that we will beat Ghana and get there. When we play, we mean business, so, for us is not only about the Ghana game which we are focusing on,” he added.

Zambia must beat Ghana to qualify to the final stage of qualification for Brazil 2014 whiles the Black Stars need just a draw to progress to the play-offs.
