Ghana were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Ethiopia on Thursday but not all hope is lost as Black Stars can still make it to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Following the draw and South Africa’s 1-0 win over Zimbabwe on the same day, Ghana trail Bafana Bafana by three points in Group G.
But a win for Ghana on Sunday will be enough to secure a place in the final qualifying round.
South African moved to 13 points today, while Ghana sit on 10. As a consequence, anything but a win for the Black Stars in their clash on Sunday will see South Africa progress to the next round.
A win or a draw in Ghana will book Bafana their ticket for the third-round play-offs, while a Ghana win will see Bafana and the Black Stars both end on 13 points and then the goal difference will decide based on FIFA rules.
However, a win for Ghana would already be enough for the Black Stars to overtake Bafana on the log based on the overall goals scored. Both teams would end with the same goal difference (+4), if Ghana win by one goal, but the Black Stars will have more goals scored (7 vs 6).
If Ghana would win by two or more goals, they would go above Bafana without even getting the calculators out.
Ghana versus South Africa will kickoff at 7 pm local time.
