The president of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku has assured Ghanaians that a new Black Stars era is set to begin today under the tutelage of new head coach, Milovan Rajevac.
The Black Stars of Ghana are set for a resumption to their 2022 FIFA World Cup series today against Zimbabwe at the Cape Coast stadium.
The senior national team has failed to impress the football fanatics for the last few years with the last loss to South Africa worsening situations.
However, things have been different since that game with the FA appointing a new head coach adding new faces to the technical bench following the departure of Charles Kwablan Akonnor.
Speaking to Joy Sports ahead of the game against Zimbabwe, Okraku believes the players are now willing to give their all and fight for pride starting with today’s game.
“I feel very confident that the boys will go out of the tunnel and play their hearts out. That is a guarantee,” the GFA president said.
“We will see a different Black Stars, one who will fight for pride. I am positive that they will be victors at the end of the day when they put in their best.”
Kurt Okraku also acknowledged the threat Ghana’s opposition poses ahead of the game but added that Ghana stands will stand tall on the day.
“We have a good opponent in Zimbabwe, we respected them but we are Ghana,” he added.
Kurt Okraku told us this morning that "what I can guarantee is we'll see a different Black Stars" when Ghana lines up against Zimbabwe today.
