Former Ghana defender John Paintsil is optimistic about Ghana’s World Cup qualification chances ahead of the final game against South Africa,

Ghana will play host to the Bafana Bafana of South Africa at the Cape Coast Stadium in the final group encounter on Sunday.

The Black Stars were held to a 1-1 draw at the Orlando stadium in Johannesburg in the penultimate qualifier on Thursday.

The four-time African Champions must, however, beat South Africa at all cost in the final group game to secure qualification to the final playoffs.

South Africa has extended their lead in Group G after inflicting a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe at the FnB stadium last night.

They sit top of the table with 13 points with Ghana at the second spot with 10 points.

In an interview, the former Fulham expressed the Bafana Bafana cannot upset the Black Stars on Sunday.

“I have so much confidence [in Ghana’s chances] because the little things I saw in the last games are amazing. And I can see the boys flying high,”

“South Africa cannot pull off a surprise here. Looking at the materials we have now and the players who are ready to listen to the coach.

“Trust me, you will do everything, but you can’t beat Milo. If he scores you the first goal, then you are done because once the first goal comes, you the opponent will open up and he will score more.”

Ghana are chasing their fourth appearance at a World Cup.
