Ghana Denied Another AFCON Trophy By Ivory Coast On Penalties….. Loses 9-8

For the second time in 5 years, Ghana’s hopes of lifting the Africa Cup of Nations trophy today have been dashed despite coming so close to it. After 120 minutes of football, the two teams settled for the penalty shootout after which Cote D’Ivoire won 9-8. This is the second time the Ivorians have denied Ghana the coveted trophy, after they beat them to it in 1992, winning that final on penalties 11-10. Ghana again lost the trophy in 2010 when they lost by 1-0 to Egypt.
