2012 ACN final: Zambia beat Ivory Coast 8-7 on PK’s (0-0 AET)

Didier Drogba had a golden chance to win it for Ivory Coast in regulation but missed his spot kick by a MILE. That set the stage for a nail biting PK shootout with both teams deadlocked after 120 minutes + which was won by Zambia as Sunzu Stophira converted his penalty after Gervinho’s miss.

  1. I rooted for Ivory Coast and Ghana, but congratulations Zambia. The world has to find a better way than roulette victories (though it makes for a gripping debacle.)

  2. Mo, the Zambians might have something to say about that! Quite a few pundits were already talking about the advantages of having a team with no superstars. African teams somehow seem to perform inversely to their star power. Case in point – Senegal.
