Ghana to meet Egypt in final
Ghana will meet the defending champions Egypt in the final of the 2010 Africa Nations Cup in Angola after beating Nigeria by 1-nil.
Ghana who have played four matches so far have scored just one goal in each of those matches and they did the same against Nigeria to reach their first Nations Cup final in nearly 20 years.
Egypt on the other hand comprehensively defeated Algeria to reach their third successive Nations Cup final.
The Pharaohs had won their first five matches by a two goal margin and they reserved their highest winning margin so far for World Cup bound Algeria.
Its also the biggest winning margin by any team so far.(see table below)
Algeria and Nigeria will play out for the third place a day before the final which will be on Sunday local time in Luanda.
So far 68 goals have been scored in the tournament and its now very unlikely that the goals record reached in 2008 will be reached this time with just two matches to go.
The table below shows the goal margins so far in the tournament(note this does not consider penalty shootout margins):
