Grant, the former Chelsea coach, was lamenting when the Teranga Lion scored in stoppage time against the Black Stars on Monday but he is not celebrating as Ghana scored two minutes into stoppage time against Algeria to secure a 1-0 victory.

Asamoah Gyan returned from a mild bout of malaria to grab the winner, outpacing Carl Medjani to net from a tight angle.

Ghana, who have reached the semi-finals four times in a row, had lost their opening game in similar fashion to Senegal on Monday.

?I didn?t like it in the last game when they scored in the last minute but we have now scored in the last minute too. We deserved it, we were the better team,? said a smiling Avram Grant after his second match as coach of the Black Stars.

Victory for Ghana over South Africa at the same time in Mongomo will also earn them a ticket to the last eight.
