The Zambian FA have confirmed sending spies to check on Ghana’s preparations towards next month’s crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier.
The Chipolopolo are determined to extend their winning streak against the Black Stars by denying them a third successive World Cup appearance in Brazil next year.
Ghana needs only a draw to qualify to the final round of the qualifiers where as Zambia must do the unexpected by travelling to Kumasi to pull a fast one on the Black Stars.
The Zambian Football Association (FAZ) are therefore putting nothing to chance as they prepare themselves both on and off the pitch in order to record another historic win over Ghana.
In their bid to achieve the unthinkable, FAZ president Kalusha Bwalaya has commissioned a team of spies to gather vital information about the Black Stars preparations towards the match.
These spies have a limitless agenda of espionage and could even infiltrate the Ghana camp to undertake their covert operations.
FAZ in confirming this development however say they have only sent an advanced party to prepare the grounds for the team’s arrival for the crucial match next week.
“We have sent some people to Ghana for about two months now to study the terrain and give us feedback,” FAZ spokesman Eric Mwanza told Happy FM.
“It is something we have done for all our away games so it is nothing new.
“We don’t want to give anything to chance for this game because we want to come away with the maximum points.”
Zambian officials are shivering with fear following the announcement of a strong Ghana squad for the deciding qualifier although they won’t admit to it in public.
The return of star players Michael Essien, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Andre Ayew who will be joining the deadly Asamoah Gyan and Kwadwo Asamoah and the rest of the Black Stars team for the game has struck fear in the hearts of many Zambians who feel their already slim chances of clinching an unexpected win is gone.
