Olympique de Marseille’s Ghanaian forward Andre Ayew said on Tuesday that there is no room for error in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, following the Black Stars’ 1-0 defeat by African Champions Zambia on Saturday.

“Now we need to work harder. Every game must be do or die for Ghana now,” Ayew was quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet.

Ghana, who made a stunning start to their campaign in the World Cup qualifiers with a 7-0 win over Lesotho, struggled against Zambia on day two in Lusaka.

The Black Stars, who are now third in Group D with three points, are seeking their third consecutive World Cup qualification since 2006.

Only group winners will advance to the final round, where two-legged ties will be held to determine Africa’s five representatives at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.
