Not taking chances: Ghana coach, Kwasi Appiah

Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah is wary of the threat Tunisia can pose and he is attaching all seriousness to the Round of 16 clash in Ismailia on Monday.

Appiah mentioned that the exit of 2017 finalist Egypt and Cameroun by South Africa and Nigeria respectively on Saturday should be a wake-up call for Ghana as no team can be termed as favourites.

"In this competition, there are no big names. Egypt and Cameroun just exited and it shows it is not easy anymore for big teams."

"I think Monday's game will be very entertaining. Both teams are very strong. Tunisia are not a bad team we can just walk over and I am looking forward to give the fans a good game to watch,” the Ghana coach said at a press conference on Sunday.

Ghana has always had the upper hand in AFCON games against Tunisia with the last encounter being a 2-1 win in the quarter finals of the 2012 AFCON in Gabon/ Equatorial Guinea.

A win for the Black Stars on Monday means they will face Madagascar, who defeated DR Congo on pelaties on Sunday, in the quarter finals.
