Welcome to Soccerway's live coverage of the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations final between Ghana and Egypt. Today's match features two of the most successful teams in tournament history, Egypt having won the trophy six times while Ghana won the cup on four occasions.
Final score: 0-1
Full Time: EGYPT WIN THE 2010 AFRICAN CUP OF NATIONS!!! And by doing so, they become the very first team to win it a third time in a row!!!
Minute 90+3: Ghana very close to the equaliser but Addo fails to get a decent shot in and the ball is for El Hadary.
Minute 90+3: Hassan is stretchered off, which will certainly add a minute or so to this game.
Minute 90+1: Three minutes are to be added on as Ghana desperately look for the equaliser.
Minute 90: A shot from Badu misses the target.
Minute 89: Egypt with their last substitution. Moatasem replaces Fathi. On Ghana's side meanwhile, Opoku comes off and Addo comes on in his place.
Minute 88: Gedo is practically certain of becoming tournament top scorer, but more importantly, Egypt are very close to winning their third African title in a row.
Minute 87: Ghana now make a change as key player Gyan comes off for Adiyiah.
Minute 85: GOAL EGYPT!!! And it is Gedo with his fifth of the tournament! The substitute exchanges passes with Zidan to break through Ghana's defense, and sends a diagonal shot past Kingson.
Minute 84: Ghana have not made a single change so far. Should the match go into extra time, this could certainly be a big advantage. Egyptian made two substitutions.
Minute 82: Hosny appears to have hurt his leg and comes off for treatment, but gets back up on his feet the moment he arrives to the sideline.
Minute 80: Ghana are now the more dangerous team. A low pass Samuel Inkoom rolls in front of the Egyptian goal but is met by no-one.
Minute 79: Gyan takes it and forces El Hadary to deliver a save. Well-taken free kick with a corner as result, which comes to nothing.
Minute 77: Free kick to Ghana in a rather dangerous position.
Minute 76: Play is resumed, with less than 15 minutes to go in regular time.
Minute 75: The match is paused for a moment as Egypt keeper El Hadary receives treatment on his ankle.
Minute 75: Gyan with another effort but this time his shot goes a few meters over the crossbar.
Minute 74: Ghana want a free kick at about 18 meters from the goal but the referee waves play on.
Minute 70: Suber-sub Gedo comes on for Moateb, and will aim to score a fifth goal and secure the top scorer's trophy.
Minute 69: Egypt are now the dominant team, as the defending champions try to force a decision in regular time.
Minute 68: Chance for Egypt as Moateb collects a pass near the edge of the penalty area but fails to control properly, allowing Kingson to avoid further danger.
Minute 67: Corner for Egypt, taken by Zidan, but it is easily collected by Kingson.
Minute 64: Gyan of French outfit Stade Rennes is without a doubt the most influential man for Ghana in this match.
Minute 62: Good chance for Ghana as Gyan's shot goes only just wide of Egypt's left post. El Hadary realizes just in time that he should not touch the ball and avoids a corner.
Minute 60: Ghaly is booked for a foul on Ghana's Kwadwo Asamoah.
Minute 58: Hossam Ghaly has a lot of space to shoot but his effort goes wide of the left post.
Minute 57: First substitution of the match as Egypt's Moawad comes off for Abdelshafi.
Minute 53: Gyan takes a free kick and it goes only just over the Egyptian bar. El Hadary even got a hand to it but his touch was not spotted by the referee.
Minute 52: The third yellow card of the match goes to Ahmed Al Muhamadi for a foul on Anthony Annan.
Minute 51: Today's referee is Koman Coulibaly from Mali. The 39-year-old also led the group match between Zambia and Tunisia on January 13.
Minute 48: And even the amount of bookings is back in the balance as Moawad is yellow-carded as well.
Minute 47: The first yellow card of the match goes to Ghana's Opuku.
Minute 48: An Egyptian free kick from the right wing is easily cleared by Ghana's defense.
Minute 46: The second half is underway. Will these 45 minutes be enough or will extra time be needed?
Half Time: The first half is over and neither side has really managed to make a difference so far. Egypt were slightly more dangerous in front of Ghana's goals but keepers Kingson and El Hadary were given little to do up till now.
Minute 45: Almost half time in Luanda and the match could still go either way.
Minute 41: Hassan delivered a free kick which goes only just past the head of Hosny at the second post.
Minute 40: A quiet phase in the match as neither side seems too willing to take much risk in the last minutes of the first half.
Minute 37: Saied didn't need long to recover and return to the pitch. He did not miss much in the mean time.
Minute 33: Egypt's Hany Saied is stretchered off after a clash with Badu, and receives treatment on the sidelines.
Minute 31: Play is slowly shifting from midfield to the two goal areas, with Egypt putting particular pressure on their opponents at this point.
Minute 30: Emad Moateb with a cross from the right but it's missed by both teammates and opponents.
Minute 28: Danger on the left wing as Gyan tries to deliver a cross, but the ball is blocked by an Egyptian defender and goes out for a throw-in.
Minute 26: Zidan tries his luck with a low shot from well outside the penalty area, but the ball rolls wide of the right post.
Minute 24: Asamoah delivers a good shot on goal but keeper El Hadary is well positioned and collects the ball.
Minute 23: As is the case with many tournament finals, today's match has not been particularly entertaining in the first quarter of the game.
Minute 21: Tournament top scorer so far, Egypt's Gedo, started on the bench and hopes to be given a chance to add to his four goals later on. Ahmed Hassan and Ghana's Asamoah Gyan each scored three so far and are still in the race to win the tournament's top scorer award as well.
Minute 18: Ahmed Hassan tries a shot for Egypt but it lacks precision and sails over Ghana's goal.
Minute 14: Ghana have a free kick on the right wing. Asamoah swings it in and Emmanuel Badu almost gets a foot in. First dangerous moment of the match.
Minute 13: Ghana and Egypt last met in a friendly in February last year. That match ended in a 2-2 result.
Minute 9: Ghana have a free kick at 30 meters from Egypt's goal. Asamoah Gyan's effort hits the wall and goes out of a corner, which then causes little danger.
Minute 7: First corner kick of the match and it goes Egypt's way. Ghana goalkeeper Kingson controls and the danger passes.
Minute 5: The ball hasn't really left midfield so far, as both sides fail to deliver a good final pass while the two defenses seem to be well concentrated.
Minute 2: The opening two minutes are rather fast-paced although there has been no danger near either goal yet.
Minute 1: The match is underway!
Minute 0: The anthems are being played at the Estádio 11 de Novembro in Luanda, Angola. First Ghana's anthem, then Egypt's.
Minute 0: Egypt are defending champions, having won the Africa Cup in 2008, and also came out victoriously two years earlier. Ghana last won the trophy in 1982, when they beat Libya on penalties in the final.
Minute 0: Although Egypt and Ghana have won the tournament ten times between the two of them and appeared in a total of 14 finals, they have never actually met in a final before.
