CAN: Ivory Coast offers a final at home against Nigeria

The dream continues for Ivory Coast. At home, the Elephants beat the Democratic Republic of Congo this Wednesday evening (1-0) and will play a final this Sunday against Nigeria, who fell a little earlier to South Africa on penalties. Haller scored the only goal of the match (65th).

At the end of a rather close match, it was finally the Elephants, at home, who won their ticket to the final of this Africa Cup of Nations. After an end to the first half rather dominated by Ivory Coast, the “miracles” of this competition opened the scoring in the second half thanks to a rather lucky goal from Sébastian Haller.

The Borussia Dortmund scorer, very prominent since the start of the match but in difficulty in the last gesture, allowed his team to take the advantage thanks to a crushed half-volley, which rebounded just in front of the Congolese goalkeeper Lionel Mpasi-Nzau, lobed.

The Ivorians were then content to manage the score and despite the few Congolese chances, the locals did not really concede any dangerous chances in the second half. They will play their fourth African Cup of Nations final on Sunday at 9:00 p.m., after 1992, 2006 and 2012, and will try to win this competition for the third time in their history.
