Johannesburg – Libya are through to the final of the African Nations Championships (Chan) final after defeating Zimbabwe 5-4 in a penalty shootout at the Free State Stadium in Bleomfontein.

The sides finished goalless after regulation time and were unable to break the deadlock after 120 minutes.

It was a drab affair which saw Zimbabwe create the better chances throughout the match, but by extra-time both teams had run out of steam.

Libya will face either Ghana or Nigeria in the final.
