Avram Grant says friendly matches should not be all about results, says the Ghana coach.

The Israeli trainer has played down his side’s 2-1 to Senegal last Saturday in Le Havre- their second defeat to the Teranga Lions in three months.

“The key objective is two things. First, that the players will be as much as they came together because I don’t think you push a button and everything becoming well,” Grant said.

“I want to continue the good performance that we earned in African Cup. Just put it as a base in future so it is to be together, to practice and to come to the games.

“We always want to win but in friendly games it is also an opportunity to test players, to test other strategizes and to make what we have even stronger.”

Grant has named a weakened side to face Mali on Tuesday night in Paris with goalkeeper Fatau Dauda replacing Razak Brimah.

Richmond Boakye-Yiadom who came off the bench to score the consolation against Senegal gets to start.

In-form Leicester City man Jeffrey Schlupp has been handed a starting role.
