Ivory Coast face Zambia for title


Ivory Coast will play Zambia in the final of the African Cup of Nations on Sunday after both narrowly won their semi-finals yesterday.

Arsenal striker Gervinho scored for the Ivory Coast as they saw off Mali 1-0, running more than 30 yards to fire home after beating his marker with a superb back-heel.

Meanwhile, Zambia shocked Ghana by beating the favourites 1-0, Emmanuel Mayuka scoring with 12 minutes to go after Asamoah Gyan missed a first-half penalty for Ghana.
