GRANTFINAvram Grant said the better team lost Sunday’s African Cup of Nations final, after he saw his Ghana side lose to the Ivory Coast in a tense penalty shoot-out.

After both sides produced a goalless 120 minutes of action, Grant’s side seemed to be heading to victory in the shoot-out after he saw his side convert their first two spot kicks, while Ivory Coast missed theirs. However, Ghana failed to convert their next two, before evetually losing 9-8.

But full of praise for his side, Grant said: “I’m so proud of my team and they always make me happy. To reach the final is a big achievement. The players have shown a lot of good things at this tournament.

“We were the better side against a team that has some of the best players around. It was down to penalties and the opponent scored one more than us.

“Every Ghanaian can be proud of this team.”
