Ghana reached the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals for the sixth tournament in a row after Jordan and André Ayew secured a 2-1 win over the Democratic Republic of Congo in a rough-and-tumble match.
Ghana, who won the last of their four titles in 1982, will face Cameroon in the semi-finals on Thursday. Egypt’s Mahmoud Kahraba scored a dramatic late goal to snatch a 1-0 win over Morocco in Sunday’s other quarter-final to book a semi-final against Burkina Faso on Wednesday. Brothers Jordan and Andre Ayew were the heroes for Ghana as the Black Stars edged Democratic Republic of Congo 2-1 to reach the semifinals of the Africa Cup of Nations Sunday. Ghana had ridden its luck against the Congolese Leopards in Oyem before Jordan opened the scoring just after the hour mark with a superb strike. DR Congo was quickly and deservedly level when Paul-Jose Mpoku scored with a swerving shot from just outside the penalty area, arguably the goal of the tournament to date.
