Avram Grant has led Ghana to the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations, but has warned Thursday’s clash against Cameroon will be ‘tough’.

The Israeli saw his side book their place in the last four of the competition, as goals from brothers Jordan and Andre Ayew saw them beat DR Congo 2-1.

Looking ahead to the match, he said: “I saw the Cameroonians [in their quarter-final] and they were very good, a very tough side. The semi-final is going to be tough.”

Sunday’s win also proved to be a tough encounter, with Grant saying he had to use some choice words at half-time. He said: “We corrected mistakes we made and in the second period it was totally different, we played good football and the two goals we scored were fantastic.”
