Zambia vs. Ivory Coast, 2012 Africa Cup of Nations Final: Katongo Hits The Post!

Zambia hit the post! The Ivory Coast had had the better of things in the first few minutes of injury time, but the underdogs break down the right side and Felix Katongo sends in a brilliant low cross, nutmegging Sol Bamba in the process. Christopher Katongo meets the ball six yards out and seems destined to score, but Boubacar Barry gets the faintest of touches with his studs and diverts the goal-bound shot onto the post and out for a corner kick.

If the Elephants weren't taking Zambia seriously before, they will now - you could easily argue that they've been the better side today, and they've made Ivory Coast work very hard to try to break them down. Didier Drogba caps off an attack by falling down in the box under pressure from Stophira Sunzu, but after Badara Diatta gave that penalty in regular time another one will not be forthcoming for the Ivorians. They'll have to do things the old fashioned way.
