“The first and greatest of all privileges of a Brother is to be a Brother; to have accepted the Law, to have become free and independent, to have destroyed all fear, whether of custom, or of faith, or of other men, or of death itself. In other papers the joy and glory of those who have accepted The Book of the Law as the sole rule of life is largely, though never fully, explained; and we will not here recapitulate the same.”

Ivory Coast crowned 2015 African cup of Nations champions

The Ivory Coast have been crowned AFCON 2015 champions after they beat Ghana 9-8 on penalties in the final at the Estadio de Bata on Sunday.

The teams were deadlocked at 0-0 after both 90 minutes and extra-time.

Only Ivory Coast could muster a single shot on target in 120 minutes on Sunday as the two star sides of African football cancelled each other out. It was left to enigmatic goalkeeper Boubacar Barry to register the winning penalty after 22 spot kicks from both teams.

The victory is the crowning achievement to date for what many see as a 'golden generation' for the Elephants, with the likes of Yaya Toure and Gervinho, among others, in their ranks.


The match was a repeat of the 1992 final won 11-10 on penalties by the Elephants but history did not look like repeating itself when first Manchester City's new 35 million euro ($39 million) man Wilfried Bony and then Junior Tallo missed their kicks.

Ivory Coast goalkeeper Boubacar Barry went down with cramp after his side had pulled the shootout back to 2-2 following two glaring Ghana misses.

A fine one-handed save from Barry at 8-8 handed the initiative to Ivory Coast and the ?keeper was booked for his theatrics as he prepared to take the winning kick, which he stroked into the top right corner.

It gave Ivory Coast their second title in their fourth final having lost to Zambia in 2012 and to Egypt in 2006.
