African Cup of Nations

The African Cup of Nations soccer tournament is coming to its conclusion this week. The quarter final matches were played over the last two days, and they were very exciting. The semi-finals later in the week will be:

Ghana (the hosts) v Cameroon
Egypt (the holders) v Ivory Coast

These teams were probably the best teams in the competition. Ghana and Ivory Coast have perfect winning records in the qualifying and knock-out stages, and Ivory Coast have averaged three goals a game with only one against them in the whole tournament. Given that international tournaments' semis are usually better than their finals, and often the highlight of the whole thing, that's my Thursday and Friday evening sorted.
