Ghana FA Technical Director Bernhard Lippert is confident the Black Stars can book a spot at the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be staged in Qatar.
Ghana defeated South Africa in the final group game by a lone goal courtesy Andre Ayew to progress to the play-offs.
Despite the game being contested in FIFA following complaints by South Africa Football Association over match manipulation, the Black Stars will be in the draw for the play-offs which will be held next year.
Bernhard Lippert is optimistic that the zeal and unity exhibited by the team during the build-up to the final game against South Africa when replicated during the play-offs will help Ghana to qualify for the Mundial.
“The last match against South Africa has given me a lot of hope, he told Citi Sports.
“We all know we have good players, but I only saw the teamwork, togetherness and passion in the last game.
“If we can show that in the playoff game, I’m very sure we can compete with the other teams in Africa.”
Ghana has been drawn in Pot 2 and will face either Nigeria, Algeria, Senegal, Tunisia or Morocco in the playoff round.
