asamoah gyan penalty

The Copper Bullets of Zambia make final as Gyan pays the penalty at the ongoing 2012 African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea. Zambia the underdog in the match shocked the world by beating favorite Ghana by a lone goal and reaching the finals of the competition for the first time in 18 years.

Zambia’s Emmanuel Mayuka, who entered the game in the second half netted Zamabia’s victory in the 78th minute to punish Ghana for missing an early opportunity in the 8th minute. Striker Asamoah Gyan’s penalty was effortlessly saved by goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene . Gyan’s penalty failure echoed his miss from the spot in the World Cup quarterfinal against Uruguay two years ago.

Even though Ghana was the better side and dominated the entire game but luck was simply not on their side as the blackstars struggled all day to find a way pass the Zambian defense.
