With an opening win against Botswana secured, Ghana are bracing up for the next match against Mali on Saturday at the 2012 African Cup of Nations.

Ghana's players not spending time reveling in the joy of winning the difficult opening Group match but focusing on the important clash at the Stade de Franceville.

Sulley Muntari says the Black Stars “want to win” against Mali.

The attacker expects another difficult game for Ghana just like the opener.

“We would try our best to win the game, that the most important thing. We would be as a group as always and play the game. It’s going to be very difficult but we would try our best,” Muntari said on Thursday after training.

“The Botswana game is over, now we are thinking of Mali. That's the most important thing ahead of us now.”

Muntari says in such a competition, playing style counts for nothing if a team fails to get a result.

“We are done with Botswana, either we played good or bad we got the three points. We heading to play Mali and that’s what we want to win.”
