Zambia stuns Ivory Coast - wins Africa Cup of Union finals 8-7

All speculations and predictions proved wrong as the most favourites Ivory Coast elephants were beaten by humble Zambians in a penalty shootout after a goalless draw in the final.

It is Zambia's first Africa Cup of Nation win. 

Zambia outplayed their opponents for large parts of the game to complete a sensational tournament which they had started as rank outsiders and beat Ivory Coast 8-7.

Ivory Coast might have won the game inside 90 minutes but captain Didier Drogba skied a 70th-minute penalty well wide.
