African stars had mixed luck in the FA Cup semi-finals at the weekend with Ivorian Arouna Kone helping Wigan triumph while a superb goal from Senegalese Demba Ba could not prevent Chelsea going out.
Kone burst clear of several defenders to create the first goal as Wigan took time off from an English Premier League relegation struggle to defeat second-tier Millwall 2-0 and earn a first FA Cup final appearance.

An outrageous lob by Ivorian legend Didier Drogba helped inspire holders Galatasaray to a 3:1 comeback spanking of Mersin in the Turkish Superlig on Saturday.

However the former Chelsea hitman showed he still had his famed deadly instincts when he intuitively connected with a team-mate's ball on the edge of the area to loop it into the net to make the scores 2:1 in the 69th minute.
The 35-year-old then capped the win in the 84th minute, meeting a cross on the far post with a trademark thumping header.
