The Elephants goalkeeper was very sad after his national team has beaten 4-3 by Algeria on penalty kicks.

Ivory Coast was defeated 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw with Algeria in the Africa Cup of Nations.

And the Elephants shot-stopper has vowed to be better in two years when the next competition is set to be played.

“Don’t be discouraged, the next Afcon is coming, we’ll work for it,” Gbohouo told the media according to Goal.

“I want to thank [Ivorians]. It wasn’t easy, as we were criticized because of our style of play. It’s a beautiful team, a young team, and we’ll come back stronger.”

“We saw a good performance from Algeria, they played, so congratulations to them,” he said.

“We tried to do our best. This evening, we gave everything but were defeated on penalties.”

“We did everything we could, but it’s the law of football,” the goalkeeper concluded.
