Jan 29, 2010, 11:26 AM

Ghana are through to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations after they held on to a first-half lead to progress.

Striker Asamoah Gyan made a darting run to fire in a near-post header to put the Black Stars ahead after 21 minutes.

Solid performances from Ghana keeper Richard Kingson and his defence kept Nigeria from capitalising on some solid second-half pressure.

It will be Ghana’s first Nations Cup final appearance since 1992.
