The 2023 CAF Africa Cup of Nations is building up to a thrilling final on Sunday, February 11, when Côte d’Ivoire and Nigeria square off.

On Wednesday night, the Super Eagles progressed to the finals with a dramatic 4-2 penalty shootout victory against South Africa, while tournament hosts Cote d’Ivoire secured their spot in the final with a 1-0 win over DR Congo.

The two teams had played each other once in the event’s group stage. Therefore, this will be their second meeting in the final. The Super Eagles of Nigeria came out on top after a penalty kick by William Troost-Ekong gave them the win. 

The competition will be unpredictable, but the final will include two teams with AFCON titles under their belts.

In 1980, 1994, and 2013, Nigerian teams lifted the trophy, while the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire won twice—in 1992 and 2015.
