Ghana in buoyant mood

Ghana are in a buoyant mood going into their final group game at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations against South Africa on Tuesday.

The match in Mongomo kicks off at 8pm, the same time of the Senegal v Algeria game.

The Black Stars will book their place in the quarter finals of the competition with an expected win over the exciting but inexperienced Bafana Bafana team in Mongomo.

Avram Grant’s team needed a last gasp strike from ailing captain Asamoah Gyan to beat Algeria to revive their campaign in Equatorial Guinea.

The former Chelsea boss’ team is however set to benefit from the improved health of their prolific striker for Tuesday’s game.

Ghana has a clean bill of health ahead of the vital game with no fresh injuries recorded.

Defender Harrison Afful says the team is prepared in all ways to take on the very swift South Africans.

“We are mentally and physically strong for this game,” the Esperance defender said.

“We are very much focused and want to win this game.”

South Africa are without injured defender Thulani Hlatshwayo, but they do welcome back talented 18-year-old central defender Rivaldo Coetzee.

Captain Dean Furman, who was an injury doubt, had light training with the team on Monday
