It was a fairly dreary 120 minutes as both sides struggled to break one another down. Here are the highlights, including the exciting penalty shootout…

The game started off scrappy, with this challenge looking painful early on…


But it livened up shortly after, with Christian Atsu hitting the post…

The match then died down a bit, with this chance from Asamoah Gyan summing up the encounter…

Both teams started to get frustrated, with John Boye lucky to get away with this…

Little else happened for the rest of the 120 minutes and it went on to penalties…

Ivory Coast missed their first two spot kicks, putting Ghana in pole position!


But then the Ghanaians also missed twice in a row to make it 2-2!

It went all the way to the goalkeepers, and Brimah Razak saw his effort saved!

And Boubacar Barry took advantage by coolly putting away the winner, giving the Elephants their first AFCON since 1992!
