Stars’ coach expects another tough battle

Ghana's coach Avram Grant leads his teamBlack Stars’ coach Avram Grant has said he expects another tough match today in Mongomo against South Africa who he described as “fantastic” at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

A win over South Africa today will guarantee the four-time African champions passage to the last-eight of the competition, while a draw and Algeria failing to beat Senegal on the same night could also get them past the group stage.

However, former Chelsea manager Grant said his “new generation” Black Stars aim to do the business against a South African team who have impressed him.

“Nothing has been decided yet in this group,” insisted former Chelsea manager Grant soon after the big win over Algeria.

“Yes, we may have beaten the number one team in Africa, but we now face South Africa, who qualified for this tournament ahead of a big team like Nigeria.

“They played very well in their first game even though they eventually lost to Algeria. They are a fantastic team.

“We are a young team who have shown we do not give up and so we will come into any game to win it.”
