Jonathan Mensah was recalled into the Black Stars team after a long absence at the start of the World Cup qualifiers in September, but failed to make the starting team against Ethiopia.

Sacked coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor then gave him his shot against South Africa, where he impressed, earning himself an invite from Milovan Rajevac.

Mensah knows the Serbian trainer very well, having played for him during his first stint in charge of the Black Stars.

With that experience, Milovan Rajevac did not hesitate in starting the experienced center-back for the games against Zimbabwe.

"I am just grateful for the opportunity again to be back with the team and it means a lot to me. I am always here to do my best for the team so whenever I am called upon to start the game; I am always going to do my best to help the team win," Mensah said in an earlier interview.
