Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is happy to reach the semi-finals but wants to correct 'some deficiencies' that hampered his team's performance against Cape Verde in their last eight clash on Saturday.

The Black Stars ended Cape Verde's fairytale at the Africa Cup of Nations, beating the Blue Sharks 2-0 in Port Elizabeth to advance.

Substitute Mubarak Wakaso hit two goals in the second half, once from the penalty spot, as Ghana clinched a semi-final meeting with Burkina Faso or Togo.

“The first half was okay.” Appiah said after the game. “The second half was not one of our best games but I think we've got more room for improvement.”

“We were playing so well until when we had the first goal. That was when we had some deficiencies in our midfield.”

The Nations Cup debutants had some opportunities to change the scoring but failed to find target in the tense match.

“On a whole our mental attitude was really good. Cape Verde dominated the second half, but we stood up and and the most important thing was that we got the win at the end of the day,” he added.
