Ghana, host of the 2008 Africa Cup Of Nations, was knocked out of contention for the title on Thursday after being defeated 1-0 by Cameroon.
Cameroon will play the winner of the other semi-final, Egypt vs. Ivory Coast.
Scenes of sobbing Ghanaian players and local fans disappointed at their team’s loss put something of a damper on the jubilation by Cameroonians.
Cameroon was considered an underdog going into the match.
VOA sports reporter Sonny Young told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe earlier that he was rooting for a win by Ghana as it would make a more exciting final if the host team were in the running.
