LIBREVILLE (AFP) - Zambia defeated Ivory Coast 8-7 on penalties to win the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations final after a 0-0 draw following extra time on Sunday.

Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba wasted a great chance to break the deadlock on 70 minutes when he blazed a spot kick over and Zambia skipper Christopher Katongo was foiled by the woodwork in the first period of extra time.
