The Black Stars of Ghana underlined their superiority over their West African neighbours Mali with a hard fought 2-0 victory in the second Group D game in Franceville, Gabon.

Two breathtaking goals in the second half by Asamoah Gyan and Dede Ayew meant the Stars book qualification into the quarter final stage of the competition.

It was cagey and perhaps was not the true reflection of the game but the Stars stood up to be counted when it mattered most.

Typical of a West African derby, the game started on a rather slow note with a feisty midfield tussle with little chances from both sides.
