2021 Africa Cup of Nations: Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac confident strikers will be efficient against Gabon

Published on: 13 January 2022


Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac says he expects his strikers to be efficient in the game against Gabon on Friday at the Stade Amadou Ahiadjo in Yaounde.

The Black Stars lost their opening game against Morocco on Monday courtesy of a Sofiuanne Boufal goal in the 83rd minute.

Milovan Rajevac who has been contracted to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations is confident his team will bounce back against the Panthers of Gabon in Group C's second game.

"I expect the team to be efficient in front of the post. We have studied the Gabon team and I know my players are prepared for the game", the Serbian trainer said at the pre-match conference.

Rajevac also admitted there is pressure on the team to deliver after losing to Morocco, but they can turn that pressure to something positive.

"Yes, there is always pressure and coaches are used to it. Gabon match is the most important and we are hoping the players can channel it to something positive.

"We have the opportunity to win the first three points. We are prepared and the players are ready", he added.

Gabon will also be boosted by the arrival of star player Pierre Emerick Aubameyang who has been cleared to play the game on Friday.

The Arsenal star missed the first game against Comoros after contracting COVID-19.
