"We respect the team we are playing against and we have a clear target, which is to qualify for the World Cup so we are going to do everything in our power to put good performance tomorrow and try to win," he added.

The four-time African champions are hoping to return to the summit of Group G with victory in the Zimbabwean capital.

A win will keep Ghana top, although temporarily, as leaders South Africa host Ethiopia in Johannesburg later on Tuesday.

Coach Milovan Rajevac was named coach of the senior national team after Ghana's slow start to the qualifiers, including a defeat to the Bafana Bafana.

However, goals from Mohammed Kudus, Thomas Partey, and Andre Ayew gave the coach the kind of start he needed.

Milovan Rajevac was in charge of the team when Ghana reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in 2010 and will be hoping to make another appearance in Qatar.
