Deputy Sports Minister Joseph Yamin has backed the coaching pair of Akwasi Appiah Maxwell Konadu in making history by being the first indigenous pair to seal World Cup qualification for Ghana.
The Black Stars are simply a draw away from progressing in the qualifiers for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.
Ghana will be hosting Zambia in the final Group D qualifier at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Friday.
There is a huge expectation to see the Black Stars beat the Chipolopolo resoundingly to atone for recent defeats.
And deputy sports minister Yamin in re-enforcing the overwhelming support being given the Black Stars believes the indigenous coaching pair of Appiah and Konadu are set to make history with the side.
“Coach Akwasi Appiah and his deputy are going to be the first Ghanaian coaching combination to qualify us to the World Cup,” he told Metro FM on Thursday.
“Everyone is here, Nana [Asantehene] is here, the honourable minister is here, I am here and the Chief of Staff will also be here for the match.
“We are approaching this game with all seriousness to ensure we beat the Zambians and beat them well.”
