JINX IS BROKEN: The Elephants Are The New African Champions

Share This


Ivory Coast won their first Africa Cup of Nations since 1992 in dramatic fashion, beating Ghana 9-8 on penalties.

Wilfried Bony smashed his spot-kick against the crossbar but the Elephants recovered in the shoot-out, eventually taking the title when goalkeeper Boubacar Barry saved from his opposite number Razak Braimah and then stepped up to score.

It was an exciting end to a game that had been anything but, with Premier League stars Bony and Yaya Toure unable to create enough to win the game in 90, or even 120 minutes.

Victory for the Ivory Coast also handed Coach Herve Renard the distinction of becoming the first coach to win the Nations Cup with different countries after his success with Zambia in 2012, when they edged the Ivorians in a shootout. See more thrilling photos below:
