AFCON 2017: Grant insists target not changed

Black Stars coach Avram Grant has insisted that Ghana’s target in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations has not changed going into their final group game against the Pharaohs of Egypt on Wednesday.
The 61-year-old reiterated his stance that the minimum for the Black Stars should be a qualification to the semi-final stage.
The Black Stars have made it to the semi-final or better at the last five Nations Cup editions but have gone 35 years without winning the trophy, a situation that places pressure on the manager and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to conquer Africa.
Speaking ahead of the game Mr Grant insists his team will maintain the focus and mental fortitude, which saw them win their opening two matches.
“Is good that they [players] are focus on every game, I like it that way. We analyze every team. To be calm and to be focus in anything we do is what we thrive for,” Grant said.
Ghana will play Egypt in a top of the table decider in Port Gentil today.
