Nigeria will play Ivory Coast on Sunday as the two nations battle to be crowned African champions in the AFCON finals.

Nigeria had steamrolled most of the way through a tense semi-final against South Africa, which ended in a penalty shoot-out and Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho scored the winner.

Hosts Ivory Coast made a disappointing start to the tournament, sacking their head coach Jean-Louis Gasset following a 4-0 loss to Equatorial Guinea. However, they qualified for the knockout stages as the third-best team, where they faced champions Senegal, much-loved Mali and D.R.

Nigeria are aiming for their fourth AFCON title, while Ivory Coast can clinch their third if they can end their unusual campaign with a win in the capital, Abidjan.
