About to kick off, can't see past the Ghanaians, which would leave to heavyweight final with Ivory Coast.

Jordan Ayew converts the penalty, deserved lead for Ghana they've had all the play, goal was coming.

It's "cute" how the EQG players have been all over the red today with their protests considering how they got into the semis :yawn:

I wonder how cynical the hosts get in the second half. No chance they come back in this game so they will try to annoy the Ghanaian players

Did Eq. Guinea get a red right after that first goal? That's what the French commentator was saying on my stream I believe.

Ghana in total control either way, this is done.

I don't get all this fuss about that last minute penalty call that gave the equalizer to Equatorial Guinea against Tunisia. It's not like that was the decision that gave them passage to the semis by itself. That allowed them to play 30' of extra time and during that period they were better, they scored a great goal and they won the match. Tunisia had 30' to prove they deserved to go through and they failed.

Needless to say that it is never good to see the home nation in an international tournament getting an extra help from the refs but how many times did that happen in international tournaments?

3-0 to Ghana at 75' thanks to some great work by Kwesi Appiah assisting Andre Ayew. Game over.

It really doesn't happen at the Euros, ok the past Euro hosts haven't been the best teams but I don't remember the hosts getting a "push" from referees like at other tournaments

Maybe Greece's red card against Poland in the Euro 2012 opener

The match is suspended at 82' because apparently the Ghana supporters had to flee from their places into the area behind one of the goals to escape being attacked by the local fans.

That's what happens when money talks over football.

No, we all know Euros are superior to anybody else in the world.
