Ivory Coast and Nigeria will face each other for the second time in the competition, after a 1-0 victory for the Super Eagles in their group stage match.
Since then, the host country has gone through all the stages: humiliated and almost eliminated by Equatorial Guinea during their third match, it seems like a miracle, after exploits against the reigning Senegalese champion then against Mali, snatched 10 against 11 .
On the other hand, Nigeria embodies quiet strength. The edifice built by José Peseiro barely wavered in the tournament, eliminating Cameroon, Angola and South Africa without a shot. Between its captain Troost-Ekong who structures the steel defense and the star Victor Osimhen who drives the attack, Nigeria is afraid of nothing and no one,
The Elephants will try to become the first host country to win since 2006, while Nigeria dreams of a fourth star. The Ivorians are trying to win their third title after those of 1992 and 2015.
