Ghana coach Ratomir Dujkovic is in an optimistic mood on the eve of his side's last 16 clash with five-times champions Brazil.
The Black Stars have already shocked the Czech Republic and the USA in this summer's tournament and Dujkovic insists he has targeted a semi-final spot for his team.
"We are not afraid of champions Brazil," said Dujkovic. "They are the best team in the world and for us it is an honour to play them but I have said our target is the semi-final.
"Any team that faces The Black Stars will have to suffer just like our group rivals Italy, the Czechs and the United States. Brazil will also suffer.
"I believe in our guys. They have the capability.
"It's very difficult to stop them. If you stop Ronaldinho, there is Ronaldo. If you stop Ronaldo there is Roberto Carlos, so it will be very difficult, very tough.
"But they are not doing so well as before with all these stars. They have excellent individuality. But as a team they are not playing so well as before."
