Ghana turn attention to Zambia clash after Lesotho win

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari

Ghana are already preparing for next weekend's 2014 World Cup qualifying clash against African champions Zambia.

The Black Stars beat Lesotho 7-0 on Friday in Kumasi, in a match delayed by floodlight failure and are due to start their journey to Ndola on Saturday.

Defender Isaac Vorsah, who missed the Lesotho game, has rejoined the squad for the trip.

"It's important that we start this way," stand-in skipper Sulley Muntari - one of the goalscorers - told the BBC.

"It's been a long time since we won with a result like this."

He shrugged off the 90 minute delay caused by the blackout and said that Ghana had shown what they can achieve under new coach Kwesi Appiah.

"All the guys here are fantastic, it's been a great atmosphere in camp. Everyone is down to earth, everyone is willing to play for the country and the new manager too, so we're very happy", he said.

Appiah himself was delighted with the win.

"It's really good, considering the fact that we were playing at home and scored a lot of goals - and tactically they played how I expected them to," the coach said.
