Milo has started work on trio Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has plunged into a deep research of Mali, Benin and Sudan to enable him map out the right strategies to outwit their Group 4 opponents to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The Black Stars, who played at the 2006 World Cup, were drawn to play the three 2008 African Cup of Nations finalists after the draw was conducted in Zurich on Wednesday.

The Serbian will watch the recent matches of the countries while monitoring their individual players who mostly ply their trade in Europe.

Rajevac says he will leave no stone unturned in his bid to give Ghana its second successive World Cup appearance.

"Our work has started already because we now know our opponents. Together with my assistants and the GFA we have started collecting information Mali, Benin and Sudan," Rajevac told Ghanasoccernet immediately after the draw.


"With the right information we can adopt the right friendly matches, tactics and the right apporaches when the qualifiers start in March.


"Together with the GFA we will plan on which friendlies we will play so that we can be adequately prepared to face these countries."


The Serbian took over the side two months ago and he is confident he can scour Europe in time to bring out the best players for the Black Stars when the qualifiers start.


"The good thing about this draw is that there is time from now until March to observe some players on the fringes to ensure that the best Ghanaian players available represent the Black Stars.


"The local league will start next month and also the leagues across the globe are ongoing so we have the opportunity to prepare well.


"We must pray against injuries which have been our bane so that we have a fully fit squad by March."


Some Key players of the Black Stars Michael Essien, John Mensah and Asamoah Gyan have all been ruled out of action with injuries.
