More of the same: Avram Grant loving
Listen to article

Ghana coach Avram Grant says he is loving his team's late heroics at the AFCON in Equatorial Guinea.

The Black Stars turned round a goal defect to defeat a determined South Africa side 2-1 to qualify for the quarter finals of the competition with two late goals  after a similar late win against Algeria and Grant says the manner of the victories is exciting.

"I am very happy but I am more happy with the way in which we did it. I said to the  players you do not need to think about how you can make yourself happy but how you can make people proud of you. And as you have seen in all the games the players are fighting. I must say thank you to all the players.

The late victories are more sweet because we spoke a lot about mentality and for them not to give up  is great and we all saw it. The first goal was fantastic and the second one was a goal of determination. We missed from a couple of chances we could have scored through and at the end of the day it is always good to be on the winning side."

After making changes to his midfield with the introduction of Afriyie Acquah and Mubarak Wakaso into his starting line up, and substitute's appearance for  striker Kwesi Appiah, Grant revealed he is making use of all his squad players.

"We want to use all the players we have. We are playing games every four days so it is important to use the players to change the games because every game is different.
