However, there was also shame for African football once again as the game was held up for over 35 minutes after fans at the Malabo Stadium went on rampage.

Hundreds of Ghana fans were forced to the race tracks of the stadium after they were attacked by Equatorial Guinea fans. The angry fans also threw missiles into the pitch forcing the game to be held up as Police helicopters had to come in and fly out some of the trouble makers.

The Black Stars of Ghana who will now face Cote d’Ivoire in the final on Sunday scored through a Jordan Ayew penalty in the 42th minutes after Equatorial Guinea goalkeeper Ovono Ovono fouled Kwesi Appiah.

At the stroke of half time the hungry Ghana side who were missing their injured skipper Asamoah Gyan made it 2-0 with Mubarak Wakasu scoring. Andre Ayew scored in the 75th minute with a neat finish.

The home side tried to fight back with their skipper Emilio Nsue trying to put the Ghana defenders under pressure but failed as their fans got frustrated and started throwing objects onto the pitch.
