The Ivorians went through the tournament without conceding a goal, but at the same time, three of their greatest players did not step up when it counted; Drogba missed a penalty during the match, and the misses in the shootout were by other stars, Kolo Touré and Gervinho.

It has been a truly great African Cup of nations, and Zambia's triumph makes it all the more memorable.
Glorious Zambia, and I wish I were in Lusaka now!
