Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire  Battle For AFCON Title

Ghana will face Ivory Coast in the final of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday.
The Black Stars completed the cast after Thursday’s impressive 3-0 win over hosts Equatorial Guinea in Malabo.

Ghana and Ivory Coast are two of the traditional powerhouses of African football, and on Sunday, they’ll go head to head in search of the continental championship title.


Ivory Coast, thanks to some Yaya Toure heroics, knocked favoured Algeria out of the tournament before beating DR Congo in the semi-final round.

Ghana, meanwhile, saw off Guinea and Equatorial Guinea by a combined score of 6-0 to set up the showdown.

It should be a cracking match.The final in port city Bata Sunday will be a repeat of the 1992 final won 11-10 on penalties by Ivory Coast after 120 goalless minutes in Dakar.

That was the Ivorians’ lone Cup of Nations title while Ghana have won the African football showpiece four times, although the last triumph came in Tripoli 33 years ago.
