Ivory Coast v Egypt Live
Catch all the action from the 26th edition of African Nations Cup live on free-football.tv, the number one online source to watch live football. Defending champions Egypt will be confident of reaching their second final in a row when they take on Ivory Coast in their semi final clash on Thursday.
Egypt overcame a resilient Angola side with goals from Hosny Abd Rabou and Amr Zaki helping them to a 2-1 victory. Egypt had taken the lead through Abd Rabou from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute but Manucho equalized for Angola in the 27th minute.
However Egypt were back in the lead by the 38th minute as Zaki capitalized on a defensive error by Carlos Kali and scored a fortuitous goal as the ball struck the striker's body before rolling into the net. Angola tried to stage a late comeback and though they managed to test the Egyptian defense, they were unable to find the equalizer.
Meanwhile Ivory Coast will be fancying their chances of reaching their second successive African Nations Cup final. Ivory Coast secured a thumping 5-0 victory over Guinea in their quarter final clash on Sunday.
Abdulkader Keita had put Ivory Coast in the lead midway through the first half before Didier Drogba doubled the lead in the 70th minute. Salomon Kalou scored a brace in space of 8 minutes before Bakari Kone chipped in with the fifth goal four minutes from full time.
The semi final clash will be a rematch of the 2006 final when Ivory Coast had lost out on penalties after holding Egypt to a 0-0 draw in normal time.
