Ghana coach Avram Grant says his side had to cut out all mistakes from their previous matches to dislodge 

The Black Stars posted a 2-1 win over the Leopards at the Stade d’Oyem to secure a semi-final berth.

It was an improved performance after losing 1-0 to Egypt last Wednesday in the final Group D match.

“We corrected mistakes we made and in the second period it was totally different,” Grant told reporters after the DR Congo game.

“We played good football. The two goals we scored were fantastic. And when we fell asleep, they (DR Congo) also scored a fantastic goal.”

African Champs League: Zamalek, Zesco and Setif through

story (1)

Egypt’s Zamalek and former champions Entente Setif of Algeria have joined Zambia’s Zesco United in the group stages of the African Champions League.

Zamalek, coached by former Birmingham City and Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish, grabbed a late equaliser against Mouloudia Bejaia to progress 3-1 on aggregate.

The success eases some of the pressure on McLeish, who’s side are trailing their great rivals Al Ahly in the Egyptian league by 11 points.

Setif, African champions in 2014, were held to a goalless draw at home by Sudan’s Al Merreikh.

Coupled with a 2-2 draw from the first leg, that takes the Algerians through on away goals.

Earlier Zesco beat Mali’s Stade Malien 2-1 on Tuesday to complete a 5-2 victory on aggregate and become the first team to reach the Champions League group stage.

Zesco’s Jesse Were scored the opener for the hosts after five minutes.

Samake Issaka equalised after the break for visitors Mali, but an 80th-minute close-range effort from Maybin Mwaba made certain of their progress.

Malien’s misery was complete when Issaka was sent off on 89 minutes.

The losers get a second chance as they enter the draw for the play-offs in the second-tier Confederation Cup.

There are five more matches on Wednesday, while the draw for the group phase takes place on 24 May.

Inside Ghana: ‘Afriyie Acquah is impotent’ – Amanda

Afriyie Acquah 01.13

The controversy surrounding Black Stars midfielder, Afriyie Acquah’s marriage to Amanda deepens as some portions of the recent leaked audio reveals that Afriyie is impotent. According to Amanda, her inability to conceive is due to Afriyie’s infertility.

“If Afriyie is fertile, wouldn’t he have impregnated me by now? Should I bring you cupful of prescribed medications he is taking for three months?,” Amanda questions in the audio.

Less than two weeks after the footballer came out to declare his unflinching love for his wife amid rumours their marriage was on the brink of divorce over Amanda’s leaked photos to another lover, Acquah’s wife has been caught in the midst of scandalous revelations in the leaked audio.

Amanda can be heard in the audio talking about her past intimacy with her husband’s international teammate, Jordan Ayew and how that often infuriates Acquah.

“Jordan and I have been good friends since childhood. We were being mocked from childhood and tagged as ‘husband and wife’. Even Dede Ayew use to say ‘these people, don’t discuss their issues. They would fight today and you will see them together the next day,’” Amanda revealed in the audio.

“I have been with Jordan for four good years, not four days,” she added convincingly.

Amanda even went ahead to disclose that her husband knows about her past relationship with Ayew and how the Torino midfielder doesn’t get on well with the Aston Villa striker.

“Afriyie is very jealous, I swear. Whenever Afriyie sets his eyes on us (Amanda and Jordan) having a chat or hanging out, he quickly gets furious and stops talking to me until I apologise,” Mrs. Acquah said.

“But now, Afriyie use to complain about his ailing relationship with Jordan Ayew. Afriyie once recounted that they travelled to Amsterdam and only Dede spoke to him; Jordan didn’t. He asked for Jordan’s contact but he refused,” she added.
