Victory for Ghana

A second-half brace from Mubarak Wakaso gave Ghana a 2-0 victory over minnows Cape Verde in the quarter-finals of the African Cup of Nations at Port Elizabeth today.

After a terrible first half, tournament debutants Cape Verde dominated the second period but second-half substitute Wakaso converted a penalty and scored again in the dying seconds after the opposition goalkeeper went up front.

Cape Verde had spurned countless opportunities to equalise, a combination of poor luck, poor finishing and excellent keeping from the faultless Abdul Dauda keeping them at bay.

In the other quarter-final match today Mali defeated South Africa 3-1 on penalties, after the match finished deadlocked at 1-1.†
