Lister’s Lowdown: The Final

Chris Lister's Lowdown

What a match the semi final proved to be!  The Elephants played with style and confidence against Mali, and it was Gervinho who made the difference.  With a bursting run, he dribbled from just inside the half way line, up the wing and slotted home the winner – brilliant!  As an Arsenal fan I am so proud of his goal and overall performance!
After a few good efforts from Drogba and Yaya, which struck the woodwork, and solid saves from goalkeeper Diakite, it was starting to look like one of those nights for the team.  However Gervinho scored the only goal of the match just before half time, taking Ivory Coast through to the final.
Ghana suffered a shock defeat in the other semi final after losing 1-0 to Zambia, who are through to their first AFCON final.  Whichever way you look at it, it will be a close and contended battle on Sunday.
One more test and that elusive cup could be ours!  Come on the Elephants!!!
