Black Stars coach, Avram Grant has targeted a semi-final berth for Ghana in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and also reiterated his quest to propel Ghana to an African Cup of Nations (AFCON) glory.

Avram Grant’s 2-year-old contract runs out after the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, but the Israeli trainer has given an indication that he would love to extend his stay with the Black Stars and possibly take the team to the Mundial.

Ghana is among the three countries African countries with the best record in the anal of the FIFA World Cup- quarter finals, but Avram Grant would want to see Ghana beat that feat in Russia.

"My target is to lead the first African country to make history at the world cup and be an African Champion at the same time," he told the media on Thursday in Accra.

"The talent is in abundance and that is why I want to build a team – a strong squad and in fact, a winning team.

"Since my first defeat against Senegal in the opening match of the 2015 AFCON, we won all the games until the final."

The Black Stars will face Rwanda on Saturday in Accra and set off to Russia to play against the 2018 host nation of the FIFA World Cup in an international friendly.

Ghana will open their 2018 World Cup qualifiers in October, 2016.

Ghana have qualified for the past three FIFA World Cup, but the four times champions of Africa, haven't won the AFCON since 1982 in Libya.
