Tournament Review:

A rejuvenated Côte d’Ivoire side went all the way at the Africa Cup of Nations Equatorial Guinea 2015 to claim their second continental crown and put an end to a 23-year drought.

Under the guidance of Frenchman Hervé Renard, who had already led Zambia to African glory in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea in 2012 at the expense of…Côte d’Ivoire, the Elephants experienced a sluggish start to their continental campaign with two back-to-back 1-1 draws against Guinea and Mali before slowly gaining momentum.

A crucial 1-0 win against Cameroon in their final Group D encounter opened the Ivoirians the doors to the knock-out stage, where they sent tournament’s favourites Algeria packing in the quarter-finals with a 3-1 victory before getting past DR Congo in their last four clash on a same scoreline.

And history was to repeat itself in the final against Ghana, with the Elephants having the last say over the Black Stars at the end of a dramatic penalty shootout, exactly like in Senegal in 1992 but with keeper Copa Barry taking over from Alain Gouaméné as the national hero.
