Nigeria beats Zambia to reach semis
Nigeria reached the semi-finals of the 2010 Africa Nations Cup after beating Zambia 5-4 on penalties.
The match finished goalless after extra-time and therefore penalties had to decide the winner.
In the earlier match Egypt once again triumphed over Cameroon scoring two goals in extra time to make a date with Algeria who overcame Ivory Coast.
Cameroon were the first score through an own goal but Egypt came back to score the next three goals in that match.
Algeria also won in extra time over the fancied Ivory Coast. The Elephants were leading 2-1 in the dying minutes of the match but Algeria equalized and in extra got the semis place.
Egypt last played Algeria in a World Cup deciding match and this could be a very explosive encounter.
Ghana dispatched the hosts Angola with a lone goal scored in the first goal. The Black Stars will meet the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a West African battle.
Continuing with the trend of showing scorelines for the Nations Cup this time I will show the first half scored so far:
|0 - 0||6|
|0 - 1||7|
|1 - 0||3|
|1 - 1||4|
|1 - 2||1|
|2 - 0||4|
