Ghana beat DR Congo 3-0 in Group B of the African Nations Championship on Sunday, a result that puts both teams through to the semi-finals.

Zimbabwe remained unbeaten after a 0-0 draw with Libya in the other game in Abidjan, but the point was not enough for the Warriors.

Charles Taylor put Ghana ahead in Bouake in first-half stoppage time with a long-range free-kick, and Yaw Antwi shot home the second from inside the box in the 68th minute.

Captain Edmund Owusu Ansah connected with a Rahim Ayew cross on 79 minutes to seal what was Ghana's first victory of the tournament.

Meanwhile, neither goalkeeper had too much to do in the draw between Zimbabwe and Libya until there was a flurry of late chances.

Ghana finished top of the group with five points, DR Congo had four, Zimbabwe three and Libya two.

Zambia will play DR Congo and Ghana face Senegal in Wednesday's semi-finals.
