Cape Town – Avram Grant believes his Ghana side were deserved winners after brushing aside Bafana Bafana 2-1.

Player Ratings: Bafana v Ghana

According to Ghana’s official website, the Black Stars coach said despite trailing South Africa he confidently state that there is no way Bafana were the better side.

"We started the match very well with two or three good chances,” said Grant.

“We had the match in our hands. I am very happy that the players showed, just as in their last match, a good spirit and good attitude.”

Goals from John Boye and Andre Ayew ensure that Ghana top Group C on goal differences as Algeria overcame Senegal.

“We deserve it because South Africa were not better than us.

“We have finished first in the group of death, which is not bad.

"After losing the first match we showed great attitude in the second and continued along the same lines today," Grant added.
