Sensational! Sensational! Nobody expected this level. But it is the Knights of the Mediterranean from Libya who won the third edition of the African Nations Championship. They edged the Black Stars of Ghana during penalties shootouts, 4 shots to 3.
As in the semi-final, it is the Libyans who were most skilful in this exercise. Their keeper Nashmoush, diverted attempts of Akuffo and Ainooson while Tijani missed his shot.
This final that many have found boring, has just propelled Libya on the continental football scene. Because this is the first time that their national team wins a major trophy. Congratulations to the Knights of the Mediterranean and their coach Javier Clemente!
