Ghana's winning run excites Black Stars coach Avram Grant as his men reach the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars beat Guinea 3-0 on Sunday in Malabo in the quarter-final to advance in the competition.

The win, Ghana's third straight victory after losing their opening game to Senegal earned Grant's team their fifth successive Nations Cup semi-final since 2006.

"Every game we are better than the game before. There were many chances and we scored beautiful goals," said Grant.

"We showed a lot of quality today, and that's important for this team."

Ghana will now take on hosts Equatorial Guinea in the second semi-final on Thursday.

And for Grant, the focus turns to the next game as the preparation starts.

"Now we start to prepare for them[Equatorial Guinea]. We saw their game on Saturday in the hotel and we will watch DVDs and learn about them but most important for us is our game."
