Ghana international Sulley Muntari is aware that their first 2014 World Cup qualifying opponents Lesotho are not pushovers any longer.
The Black Stars will face the Crocodiles at home this Friday to kick off their Brazil 2014 campaign.
Muntari, who had an impressive loan spell with AC Milan last season, said that despite playing at home, the Southern Africans will be tough to beat.
"It will be difficult because they will stay back and defend, so we know what to expect," Muntari told BBC.
He said qualifying for the World Cup for a third successive time will be dream come true for him and the west African side.
"The World Cup is an amazing event and every player wants to play in it - I personally want to do it a third time."
