It was a sad moment for Hoffenheim's Isaac Vorsah as he picked up his silver medal at the prize ceremony. Nagui's goal in the 85th minute ruined his dreams of glory, leaving them hardly any time to respond. The two teams fought out a tense match with few chances. The Ghanaians made it their sole aim to stop Dortmund's Egyptian striker Mohamed Zidan for the first 75 minutes and only attempted to pressurise their opponents goal in the final quarter of an hour. However, it wasn't to be for the Black Stars, who despite a good chance for Addo were unable to come back from Nagui's killer strike.
Ghana just missed out on the Africa Cup of Nations final in Angola, losing to defending champions Egypt 1-0 in the final.
