Egypt won a third consecutive African Cup of Nations after beating World Cup-bound Ghana by a goal to nil in Luanda.

Super-sub and tournament top scorer Mohamed 'Gedo' Nagui - whose five goals in the tournament all came after coming on as substitute - lit up a drab encounter with a moment of brilliance in the 85th minute.

An incisive one-two with Zidan split Ghana's defence and Gedo curled a perfect right-foot finish into the corner of the net.

Egypt, then, remain the champions of Africa - a certain consolation for not being involved in this summer's first African World Cup.
