Sons of Ghana’s football legend Abedi ‘Pele’ Ayew, Jordan and Andre, scored a goal each for Ghana on Sunday as they reached the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals with a 2-1 win over DR Congo in Oyem.

Jordan, an Aston Villa ace, opened the scoring in 62 minutes to put the Black Stars ahead, before Paul-Jose M’Poku equalised for DR Congo with a sensational curling long-range effort from outside the box five minutes later.
