Oyem - Ahead of their tough assignment against the high flying Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana head coach Avram Grant reckons that it will not be a walk in the park for his side on Sunday.

The Black Stars will lock horns against the Leopards in the third quarter-final encounter of the 2017 African Cup of Nations at the at the Stade de d’Oyem.

The former Chelsea mentor, however, believes that it will be a different ball game when the two sides battle for a semi-final spot.

“It will be a different ball game on Sunday,” Grant told reporters in a press conference.

“It will be a different story as well. Some players we rested in midweek will be back.

“We all know that the Democratic Republic of Congo is a good team, they are a tough team to play against. They have great and quality players as well.

“So it won’t be an easy task for us, it will be a very tough game.”

Kick-off for this clash is scheduled for 18:00.
