Ghana beats Nigeria to reach African Cup final

Ghana reached its first African Cup of Nations final in 28 years Thursday after Asamoah Gyan scored to secure a 1-0 win over Nigeria.
Gyan broke the deadlock in the 21st minute against the run of the play to send the Black Stars into the biennial tournament's final for the first time since 1992.
World Cup qualifier Ghana will next face the winner between Algeria and Egypt, who played later Thursday in the other semifinal.
Nigeria dominated from the start and created a dozen good chances but was unable to break down Ghana's rock-solid defense.
