The senior national team of Ghana, the Black Stars, have revived their World Cup hopes after beating Zimbabwe on matchday four of the qualifiers.
Thomas Partey’s brilliant 30th minute freekick earned the West African powerhouse all three points in Harare and they now go top of Group G.
Ghana will be waiting on the result from South Africa later tonight to see if they maintain their place at the top an the end of the international break.
The four-time African champions began the game in explosive fashion, with Stade Rennais winger Kamaldeen Sulemana, causing problems on the left flank.
In a one-on-one situation, the clever winger outpaced a Zimbabwe defender to force a save from their goalkeepers as the Black Stars chased an opener.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe came close to breaking the deadlock but Ghana goalkeeper, Jojo Wollacott, was quick to react to a back pass from Jonathan Mensah.
Ghana then won a freekick after the hour mark following a foul on skillful midfielder Mohammed Kudus. Thomas Partey, who started the game as captain, elected himself and made no mistake brilliantly firing home.
Mohammed Kudus nearly doubled the lead but his effort from a corner kick was cleared off the line. The Ajax star then hit the cross bar five minutes after the break.
