Ghana Vs. Nigeria: Will it be the question of David and Goliath again?

LUANDA (Reuters) - Ghana's new generation continue their bid for the country's first African Nations Cup title in 28 years when they face a Nigeria side that needs freshening up as the World Cup-bound teams clash in Thursday's semi-final.

The Black Stars, who are in Angola without several key experienced players, have had to rely on some of their Under-20 world champions to get past the group stage and knock out host nation Angola in the quarter-finals.

Nigeria, on the other hand, are a little weary after needing a penalty shootout to see off unfancied Zambia in the last eight and then having to travel from Lubango to Luanda for the semi-final at the November 11 stadium (1600).
