Ghana, Egypt to play in African Cup final
Two-time defending champion, Egypt hammered eight-man Algeria 4-0 in a tense match today in Angola to advance to the final of the African Cup of Nations.
Hosni Abd Rabou converted a 37th-minute penalty and Mohamed Zidan doubled the lead with a left-footed shot from 15 metres.
Substitute Mohamed Abdel Shafy made it 3-0 in the 80th from a tight angle and Mohamed Gedo scored the fourth in injury time.
In Sunday\'s final, Egypt will play Ghana, which beat Nigeria 1-0 in the other semi-final.
The win was Egypt\'s first over their North African rival in the continental championship.
