Egypts' two-time defending champions had a triumphant 4-0 victory against Algeria in a foul-ridden and bleak Africa Cup of Nations semi in Benguela to reach Sunday's final against Ghana .

 

The Pharaoh's dominance began at a fast pace with the six-time champion creating chances in the opening minute.

 

Hosni Abd Rabou converted a 37th-minute penalty and Mohamed Zidan doubled the lead with a left-footed shot from 15 yards.

 

Substitute Mohamed Abdel Shafy made it 3-0 in the 80th minute from a tight angle and Mohamed Gedo scored the fourth in over time.

 

Algerian Rafik Halliche, Nadir Belhadj and goalkeeper Faouzi Chaouchi were all separately sent off in a game which occasionally looked as if the referee had lost control.

 

Algeria will play Nigeria in Saturday's third place playoff in Benguela.
