But as they exited at the semi-final stage, those same fans showed an uglier side, throwing bottles at Ghanaa£á?s players, staff and fans, causing the game to be stopped for more Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 than half an hour.With eight minutes left and the Ghana fans being pelted with bottles from both sides, the game was stopped for them to be escorted from the stadium, amid fears for their safety.A?

Despite the use of a police helicopter Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 to try and restore order, it took more than half an hour to restart, with the stadium almost empty.Travelling fans and journalists had to deal with a shower of glass and stones during the delay, while outside the ground there was carnage.Riot police eventually stormed some sections of the stadium, firing tear gas and using their batons on Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 fans as they tried to re-assert some control.Once play restarted, the game played out at the pace of an exhibition and with the atmosphere of a particularly grim funeral. Only a few more minutes were played, though, before play came to an end early.It was a farcical end to a shameful spectacle that will overshadow an otherwise excellent Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 tournament.And on Friday, Equatorial Guinea were fined $100,000 dollars (A¢G65,502) and ordered to meet the cost of treatment of the supporters injured during the chaotic scenes.Ghana manager Avram Grant remained calm throughout, keeping his players out on the pitch despite the potentially dangerous situation.a£á?Ita£á?s the first time Ia£á?ve played games in this tournament,a£á? the former Chelsea and Portsmouth Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 boss said after the game. a£á?I didna£á?t know what was happening, we saw some incidents of violence. I could not say I wasna£á?t concerned but I wanted to keep the safety of my players a£á¡§ it was very important for me.Equatorial Guinea captain Emilio Nsue, who plays his club football for Middlesbrough, apologised for the trouble, which the Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 players had consistently tried to calm to no effect.a£á?Ia£á?ve never played in front of anything like that,a£á? he admitted. a£á?Ia£á?d like to say sorry on behalf of my team.

Avram Granta£á?s side have grown into this tournament after a slow start, and kept their calm and concentration to reach the Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 final. On this showing, they will provide Ivory Coast with a stern test in Bata.Jordan Ayew put the Black Stars ahead from the penalty spot after Felipe Ovono had fouled Crystal Palacea£á?s Kwesi Appiah.Then just four minutes later, with the home side throwing everyone forward at a corner, Evertona£á?s Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu led a quick break, before Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 feeding Celtica£á?s Wakaso Mubarak, who cut inside and fired home.It was too much for the supporters, who reacted not only with boos, but also with water bottles.A?A?The first signs of trouble had come after Ayewa£á?s penalty. With Ghana celebrating in their own half, Nsue and Balboa tried, cleverly or unsportingly, depending on your moral compass, to kick off Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 quickly.Referee Castane, already unpopular with the crowd for (correctly) awarding the penalty moments before, called them back.The Estadio de Malabo is neither as big nor as intimidating as the ground in Bata where the hosts had played all their previous games, but it still provided a raucus, and eventually violent, environment.As the home players protested, bottles began to Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 fly from the stands, mostly aimed at the Ghanaian bench, where substitutes and coaches were under almost constant fire for the rest of the half.Worse was to follow at the break, after Wakaso had doubled Ghanaa£á?s lead. The dugout continued to take a pounding, and riot police had to be called in to help the Black Stars off Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 the pitch. Even with their helmets and shields, there was a point at which the officers had to take shelter in the relative calm of the tunnel.By the time Andre Ayew had scored the third Ghana goal, midway through the second half, bottle throwing greeted every refereeing decision, aimed not only at the pitch but at the corner Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 of Ghanaian fans in the stands.A?It was not just shameful, but also a real disappointment as it distracted from what had been a decent performance from the hosts for the first 40 minutes, and a stunning tournament for Equatorial Guinea in general.

Watch video Argument erupts between Jenna and Natasha in CBB house Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 The hosts came into the tournament ranked 37th in Africa a£á¡§ to put that in context, it is the equivalent of Armenia reaching the semi-finals of Euro 2016.And they looked for a spell at least, as if they might even go a step further. For the first 40 minutes they matched their more illustrious opponents, looking as likely Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 to score as Granta£á?s men.Diosdado Mbele, the teenage centre-back who plays domestically for the Vegetarian Lions, was more than a match for Jordan Ayew and Kwesi Appiah, of Lorient and Crystal Palace.When his defence was breached Ovono, of Deportivo Mongomo, another scarcely-known local side, was quick to show why he is odds on to be named goalkeeper of Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 the tournament.The young keeper charged out of his goal to punch on three occasions, saving at the feet of Atsu on another, before denying Appiah with an excellent stop when the forward, on loan at Cambridge United, was through on goal.His occasional rash judgement was exposed, both in the giving away of the penalty and in the rush Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 of blood that allowed the third goal, but he still deserves to be considered a star of the tournament.A?

Ivan Edu in particular looked badly affected by the emotion of the occasion, over-hitting most of his early passes and almost being drawn into fights several times.Neither side mustered too many clear-cut chances, but until the first goal, it was hard to pick a winner. But two goals Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 in five minutes effectively killed the game, booking Ghana their place in Sundaya£á?s final.A?For the hosts, this should have been remembered as a miraculous achievement. Three months ago they werena£á?t even allowed in the tournament. Barely two weeks before it started, they had no manager. To reach the semi-finals under such circumstances is a feat of on-pitch achievement Christmas Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 few can match.But, instead, their run will be overshadowed by controversy. The terrible quarter-final penalty decision, which saw them get this far, might eventually be forgotten (though not for a while, one feels, in Tunisia).But the missiles from the crowd will remain far longer as the dominant memory, not just of this game, but of this tournament.A?
