Quadruple winners Ghana are back in contention for a berth in the African Nations Cup quarterfinals after captain Asamoah Gyan struck deep into stoppage time to earn a 1-0 victory over Algeria Friday.Littered with errors and fouls in the first half, the game came to life after the break but produced no clear-cut chances until the talismanic Gyan struck to ease the pressure on Ghana coach Avram Grant, the former Chelsea boss.Algeria, the top-ranked team in Africa, dominated the opening 30 minutes but defender Madjid Bougherra had to glance away a teasing cross from the right to deny Gyan a clear header at goal.With time running out and Grant frantically yelling instructions from the touchline, substitute Mubarak Wakaso belted a hopeful ball up field and Gyan produced a moment of magic to delight his teammates.
