The Black Stars are scheduled to take on Zimbabwe in a double-header FIFA World Cup qualifier this weekend.

“Be proud to be part of the setup,” Rajevac told the players following Tuesday’s training session in Cape Coast.

“Be proud because you are representing your country. The only way we can do this is to do this together.”

The Black Stars currently have three points from two matches, having won against Ethiopia and lost to South Africa.

Meanwhile, Ghana recorded a huge 8-0 victory over lower-tier side Soccer Intellectuals during a warm-up game on Wednesday.

The Black Stars scored four goals on either side of the half to complete a resounding win over their opponents.

Kamaldeen Sulemana netted twice within the half-hour, before goals from Mohammed Kudus and Joel Fameyeh saw the Black Stars take a comfortable lead into the halftime break.

Fatawu Issahaku (double), Benjamin Tetteh and Yaw Yeboah all came on in the second half to also add their names to the score sheet.

Meanwhile, Jordan Ayew, who started as a right-winger, failed to score and missed a penalty when presented with a glorious opportunity.
