Jonathan Mensah: Ghana defender thrilled with another AFCON quarters after South Africa win
Defender Jonathan Mensah is delighted to have made another Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final berth following his side's breathtaking 2-1 win over South Africa on Tuesday.
The Black Stars had to dig deep to secure the famous victory over the Bafana Bafana to secure their passage to the last eight.
Much-maligned defender John Boye and winger Andre Ayew scored in the last 17 minutes to propel the West African giants to the next stage of the competition.
Mensah, who plays for French side Evian, was left thrilled with the team's all-familiar progression to the quarters.
Happy to have made it to another AFCON QF. Just told the media how proud I am of the team. Great spirit & character!” he tweeted.
