Rajevac’s side didn’t come to the party against the Atlas Lions and were largely outplayed in that encounter.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of the Gabon clash, the Serbian said Ghana has not recorded any COVID-19 cases thus far.
“No Covid-19 situation in camp. All players are fit,” Rajevac said, as quoted by Angel FM journalist, Saddick Adams.
The Black Stars boss further gave an update on captain Andre Ayew, who suffered a head injury against Morocco.
The 31-year-old was excused from training on Wednesday, but Rajevac insists he is now okay and available for selection.
“Andre Ayew is in stitches but he is fit and okay. Will he be selected for tomorrow? As for selection, I don’t talk about it,” he stated.
Meanwhile, Rajevac also expressed his view on the controversial refereeing that marred the game between Mali and Tunisia.
Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe came under the spotlight after ending the Group F clash before 90 minutes.
The match official made a series of contentious decisions as Mali recorded a 1-0 win over the North African side on Wednesday afternoon.
Rajevac said he was hopeful that such controversial refereeing will not be repeated in the upcoming AFCON matches.
“I hope the next round of matches will be less controversial. In our game vs Morocco at the end of first half per our judgement, we had a penalty but VAR rejected. I’m not a fan of criticising referees,” the Ghana coach added.

‘I Want To Play Another World Cup’ – Asamoah Gyan
Gyan hasn’t played for the Black Stars since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and has been blighted by injuries.
The 36-year-old returned to the Ghana Premier League last season after signing for Legon Cities, but rarely played before parting ways with the club after just a year.
Currently promoting his autobiography, titled ‘Legyandary: the story of Asamoah Gyan’, the veteran striker said every player would love to play at the World Cup.
He, however, explained that he is currently not fit enough to play at the highest level, which all but rules out his chances of playing in the tournament.
“Who doesn’t want to play at the World Cup? Every player wants to play at the World Cup,” he said on Citi TV, as quoted by Ghanaweb.
“Yes, I have tasted the World Cup three times and though I would love to play at this year’s World Cup, as I have always said, I am currently not fit enough to play active football but when I Start playing – who knows?”
The former Sunderland and Al Ain forward further revealed that he will be in Qatar for the World Cup as a pundit.
The striker’s book launch will come off on Saturday, April 30, 2022, at the plush Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra.

Will Callum Hudson-Odoi Play For Ghana In the World Cup?
Information reaching GhArticles.com from GOAL.com can reveals that Callum Hudson-Odoi is contemplating switching from England to Ghana.
On March 29, Ghana defeated Nigeria in two legs to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The 21-year-old hasn’t played for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions in almost two years, and he’s rejected down recent Under-21 call-ups.
Despite winning three caps for England, Hudson-Odoi is still free to switch nationalities.
This follows a FIFA rule change in September 2020 that allowed players with three or less caps to move once they turned 21.
The dual nationality of Hudson-Odoi comes from his father Bismark, who played football for Hearts of Oak in Ghana.
Hudson-Odoi has been to Ghana on vacation recently, in January 2022 and last summer.
When asked whether he was considering switching, he answered, “We will wait till that moment comes.”
Hudson-Odoi has reportedly met with President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Ghana Football Association.
