John Paintsil believes history favours Ghana to qualify ahead of South Africa

Ex-Ghana defender John Paintsil believes history favours the Black Stars to secure qualification out of Group G in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Black Stars currently sit second in the group that has South Africa, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia with the Bafana Bafana leading the group with 7 points, a point better than that of the Black Stars.

Ghana and South Africa were in the same group during the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Ghana similarly fought from behind to claim the sole ticket available in the group to qualify for the Mundial in Germany.

Former defender Paintsil, who played for English Premier League sides Fulham, Leicester City, and West Ham United insists history favours the Black Stars to qualify ahead of South Africa.

Ghana take on Zimbabwe in Harare on Tuesday afternoon in a matchday four clash at the National Sports Stadium.
