Black Stars captain Andre Ayew first player to arrive for Zimbabwe clash

Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has arrived for the Ghana’s double World Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe.

The in-form Al Sadd star left Qatar after Friday’s 4-0 thrashing of Al Arabi. Ayew scored the fourth goal of the game to make it four goals in four straight matches.

He will be meeting new coach Milovan Rajevac as the rest of the team start arriving this week.

The Black Stars will host the South African nation on Saturday, October 9, 2021, at the Cape Coast Stadium before traveling to Harare three days later for the second leg.

Ghana currently lie second on the table after a win and a defeat in the opening two matches of the qualifier.

Defeat to South Africa led to the sacking of coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor with the Serbian gaffer replacing him.

Milovan Rajevac has named a 32-man provision squad for the double header.
