Time stood still when Ghana took on the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire what a nation cup of thrilling inexperience, luck and skill.
The Ghanaian side had the game under control if not their inexperience, mostly, from the goal keeper from the Ghanaian side.
All stars from both side had their chances and best opportunities but the moment of reckoning proved Ghana inexperience for the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire to lift the African Unity Soccer trophy.
Some say Ghana was the better side on the night taking to consideration the amazing skill and football artistry exhibited by the Ghanaian young lads.
The Ayew brothers, Yaya Toure, Asamoah Gyan, Kola Toure all in the party.
The Ghana coach must be commended for putting up a team of young lads. The Ghanaian team could be described as a team for the future. If the Ghana football federation will only see the potentials in that team, and allow the team to grow together.
It was indeed destined that the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire are meant to lift the 2015 AFCON everything played out to paint to the fact that Ghana has to leave the trophy for Cote D’Ivoire.
The penalty missed, Gyan refusing to take penalty, game that ought to be rapt at regulation time was stressed to extra time, double.
Ghana should better be contented with the runners up title and plan for next edition.
For Cote D’Ivoire, they should cherish their happy moment and work for tomorrow for there is always another competition.
Cote D’Ivoire indeed worthy Super Eagles replacement to lift the 2015 AFCON trophy. ###
