AFCON 2017: Black Stars through to Semi-finals

The Black Stars defeated the Leopards of DR Congo by 2-1 in the quarter final stage of the Nations cup at Stade Oyem.

Aston Villa’s Jordan Ayew opened the scoring on 62 minutes, curling the ball past Ley Matampi in the Leopards goal.

Paul-Jose M’Poku equalised for DR Congo with a sensational curling long-range effort from outside the box.

West Ham’s Andre Ayew then coolly dispatched a winning penalty, sending Matampi the wrong way to seal the win.

Ghana will now face Cameroon   on Thursday in the final four at the Stade de Franceville
