The Elephants of Ivory Coast on Sunday Defeated the Super Eagles of Nigeria to win the 2023 Edition of the TotalEnergies African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The Host defeated Nigeria 2-1 within the regulation time in a thrilling rematch at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire to emerge the African Champions.
A perfect header from Captain William Troost-Ekong put the Super Eagles ahead at half-time but was cancelled by a header from Franck Kessie of Ivory Coast.
The Elephants, however, completed the comeback in the 80th minute with a flick from Sebastien Haller.
Although the Super Eagles defeated the Elephants 1-0 in the group stage through a penalty kick from Captain William Troost-Ekong, they refused to fly today in the finals.
The result may not be the best for the country, however, the national team must be commended for lifting a Silver Medal at the tournament.
