MOST COMMENTED

[AFRICA CUP OF NATIONS] Sub Emmanuel Mayuka's third goal of the tournament in the 78th minute gave Zambia a 1-0 win over heavily favored Ghana and moved the Chipolopolo into the final of African Nations Cup for the first time since 1994. Zambia will face Ivory Coast, a 1-0 winner over Mali on a brilliant goal by Arsenal's Gervinho after a run from the midfield line late in the first half.

Ghana's Asamoah Gyan missed a penalty and Derek Boateng was sent off late in the game.

Ivory Coast's Elephants dominated Mali but had stars Didier Drogba and Yaya Toure both hit the woodwork.
