FIFA World Cup

While discussing how to eliminate SA on Sunday, Ghana Coach got his calculations wrong.

Ghana's coach makes a blunder in his calculations.

When discussing what it will take to eliminate Bafana Bafana on Sunday evening, Ghana head coach Milovan Rajevac appeared to have made a blunder in his calculations, according to reports.

Milovan Rajevac, the head coach of the Ghana national team, made a mistake in his goal-difference calculations following their 1-1 draw against Ethiopia on Thursday in a FIFA World Cup Qualifying match.

The Black Stars are currently in second place in Group G with ten points, ten points behind Bafana Bafana, who have accumulated 13 points so far, with one game remaining to determine the group's champion.

While it appears that the head-to-head record will decide the outcome, Serbia's coach believes that they must beat Hugo Broos' men by two goals or more in order to advance to the next round of the World Cup Qualifiers in Russia.

However, any win for Ghana will put an end to South Africa's hopes of qualifying for the next round in Qatar, as Rajevac's men could qualify for the next round if they beat Bafana Bafana. A 1-0 win for Ghana will increase Ghana's goal-difference to +4 and reduce SA's to +4. As a result, the Black Stars' goal tally will rise to seven, while Bafana's tally will remain unchanged at six goals.

"I'd like to express my gratitude to my sons for their dedication and perseverance. We were anticipating a difficult match today. Then I'd like to express my gratitude to the Ethiopian team for putting in an outstanding performance today; they certainly deserved to win," he said following the game at Orlando Stadium.

"We've had some issues in the defense, and we've made some mistakes today, so everything will be decided on Sunday," says the coach. If we want to qualify for the final round of the qualification process, we must win our next match on Sunday by a two-goal margin (see below).

Everything will be decided in the final match, and this is exactly what we predicted from the beginning, so the final match will be like a championship game, you know, deciding who will advance to the next round."

In the event that South Africa wins tonight, we will need to win by a two-goal margin, which is a straightforward calculation. As a result, we must take this seriously, and we must all work together to see that it is accomplished."

When Ghana takes on Bafana Bafana at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium at 21:00, they will have to fight for every point they can get.
