Zambia coach Herve Renard hopes to meet Ghana at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations to enhance his teamâ€™s chances of progression.
Playing against the Chipolopolo have been unfavourable for the Black Stars in recent games.
Ghana has lost twice in the last two games between the sides â€“ first at the semi final stage of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations and then in the preliminary 2014 World Cup qualifier.
And Zambiaâ€™s French trainer who was once an assistant coach of the Black Stars wants another rematch fully convinced his side will reign supreme again.
â€œAt the moment there is the African Cup of Nations and I hope once again to meet again Ghana because it will mean we will go far,â€ he told MTNFootball.com.
Renard however admits subsequent games between the sides will only get tougher especially with the return encounter of the World Cup qualifier to be played in Ghana.
â€œIt will be more difficult (playing Ghana) because the next game (2014 World Cup qualifier) will be in Ghana,â€ he adds.
â€œThat means we just have to be strong. We know it will be very difficult to play in Ghana especially with this last game going to be very important.â€
The African champions in Group C are unlikely to meet Ghana housed in Group B until the grand finale if both teams manage to make it that far in South Africa.
