AFCON: Ghana finally suffers defeat against Tunisia


Tunisia has defeated Ghana on penalties to set up an Africa Cup of Nation quarter-final with Madagascar

Tunisia had been seconds away from winning in 90 minutes, but substitute Rami Bedoui headed into his own net injury time, with his first touch. Making the scoreline 1 – 1.

All went bad for Ghana as they missed one slot on penalties

Goalkeeper, Farouk Ben was the hero, coming on for the shootout and saving Ghana’s Akuban’s penalty

A note that Asamoah Gyan, who missed a penalty for Ghana in 2010 as they went out of the World Cup against Uruguay, did not step forward to take one for Ghana, since he’s vow never to play penalty for Ghana again.

Including this match, Ghana and Tunisia have met eight times at the AFCON, Ghana have won six out of the matches, drew one with Tunisia, but unfortunately for Ghana, Tunisia has won its eight match with Ghana.

Penalty Results
Ghana 4 – 5 Tunisia
