Ex-Ghana Sports Minister Enoch Teye Mensah sees the 2014 World Cup group decider against Zambia as a no-contest.
The Black Stars will host the Zambians in Kumasi next month in a hugely-anticipated clash.
While the Ghanaians need either a draw or win to maintain their top position in group D, the Chipolopolo must grind out result at all cost to edge past their opponent in the race to finish top of the group.
The game has been characterized by a huge mental battle with both sides keen on the outcome of the fixture.
However Ghana’s longest serving sports minister, Enoch Teye Mensah insists the Zambians will be no match for the West African giants.
”As as I’m concerned there is no cause for alarm. People are just making unnecessary noise. Zambia will be no match for us in Kumasi,” Teye Mensah said
”I don’t see Zambia beating us in Ghana. I don’t think will ever happen and it won’t happen.
”They are probably making noise to gain attention and hope that we’ll get distracted. But our boys are professionals and know what is stake.
”Zambia will be no-match for us. We’re going to give them a resounding beating. You mark my words.
”At the end of the game, everybody will realize that they are not our match even though they have beaten us on two consecutive occasions.
”Ghanaians should be rest assured that we’ll beat them. We’re not getting complacent but I just don’t see Zambia winning in Kumasi. It won’t happen.”
Zambia have reported the Ghana FA and midfielder Derek Boateng to FIFA claiming the Fulham enforcer has made provocative and inciting comments against the Chipolopolo ahead of next month’s showdown.
