Sensational Ivory Coast Wins 2015 AFCON

The Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire have won the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations’ final after defeating the Black Stars of Ghana 9-8 on penalties in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.

The two West African countries had played goalless in both regulation and extra times and had to settle the match through penalties.

Elephants goal tender Barry Copa became the hero of the Ivorian team, saving Stars goalkeeper Razak’s penalty kick while scoring his against the Ghana keeper for the last kick.

The Elephants equally defeated the Black Stars in 1992 in Senegal to win their first competition.
