Ghana netted three goals against Equatorial Guinea last night at Nuevo Estadio de Malabo to secure their place in the tournament final.

The AFCON hosts conceded a penalty before half-time which Jorden Ayew put away as his first goal of the tournament.

During stoppage time, Wakaso doubled Ghana's lead from a counter attack led by Ayew.

André Ayew took advantage of Equatorial Guinea's slack defending and scored the final, definitive goal in the 74th minute.

As the match drew to a close, Equatorial Guinea supporters forced the Ghanaian fans onto the side of the pitch as missiles and bottles were thrown at them. The match was stopped for a few minutes but later resumed with the referee adding 3 minutes of stoppage time. Equatorial Guinea could not manage to fight back and walked away with a clean sheet. Ghana will now face Cote d'Ivore in the final which will be played at the Estadio de Bata on Sunday, 8 February at 21:00. Hosts Equatorial Guinea have a chance to save face when they go head to head with DR Congo for their 3rd/4th position encounter on Saturday at 18:00 at theNuevo Estadio de Malabo.
