Ghana fans enjoyed the win over Cape Verde

Ghana equaled the Nations Cup record of consecutive semi final berths with a 2-0 victory over Cape Verde on Saturday.

A brace by midfielder Mubarak Wakaso ensured the Black Stars joins Nigeria as the most successful team in the history of the prestigious competition to make the last four on four consecutive occasions.

Ghana have now overtaken Egypt who hold three consecutive qualifications to the semi finals ? attained during their dominant era where they won three Nations Cup titles on the bounce between 2006-2010.

The Black Stars will now await their semi final opponents which will be the winner of Sunday?s quarter final tie between Burkina Faso and Togo.

The team could even go further in achieving another milestone by ending a staggering 31-year trophy drought by winning the tournament in South Africa.

The Black Stars will however need to up their game if they are to make it through to the grand finale as they struggled to beat Cape Verde in Port Elizabeth.
