The finale, set for the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan, is a meeting of heavyweights, as three-time AFCON champions Nigeria take on tournament hosts and two-time winners Cote d’Ivoire. This is not the first time these two teams have met at this tournament after being placed in the same group. And it was a one-goal win for Jose Perriera's Nigerian team. Nigeria enters the final as the favourite, armed with an impressive defensive record and a star player in Victor Osimhen.
But he is not a one-man show, with players like Ademola Lookman and captain William Troost-Ekong making their presence felt as well. Coach Jose Perreira has won over fans' hearts despite initial doubts, while Ivory Coast, under Emerse Faé's leadership, has surprised everyone by reaching this far in his first managerial appointment, mid-tournament. Nigeria, who are unbeaten in the tournament, squeezed past a strong challenge from South Africa in the semifinal, emerging triumphant on penalties after a 1-1 draw over 120 minutes. The Super Eagles now have the chance to win a first continental title since 2013. Cote d’Ivoire, meanwhile, have had a true roller-coaster of an AFCON: they very nearly went out of the group stage, then had dramatic triumphs over Senegal and Mali, and then put in their best showing of the tournament by defeating DR Congo 1-0 in the semis. It's now time for the climactic clash between Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire.
History suggests that Nigeria has the upper hand, but Cote d’Ivoire is determined to turn the tables and claim victory. All eyes will be on the Olympic Stadium in Ebimpe as these two giants clash for the ultimate prize in African football. Who will emerge victorious and carve their name into history? The answer will soon be revealed, and Africa will have a new champion. Your best football moment awaits you on DStv - where football dreams come alive.
