Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal have received a stern warning from Kalusha Bwalya that Ghana is capable of winning their World Cup group-stage match.
The Black Stars will play the Selecao at Stadium 974 (Rass Abou Aboud) on Thursday to open their campaign at the international competition in the Gulf country.
Ghana, coached by Otto Addo, will be anxious to get off to a good start against a potent Portugal team that includes Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United.
The 59-year-old Bwalya, who has earned the eighth-most caps for Zambia, believes that the Black Stars have what it takes to defeat the Selecao.
WHAT HE SAID: “They should enter the match as Ghana. They are a very good team, a very strong team, and they can go there and dish it out against the best in the world. I feel they have a chance in the first game, to earn a favourable result,” Bwalya said to SuperSport TV.
If they succeed in getting the desired outcome, they will demonstrate to the other teams in the group that they are serious competitors.
