AFCON: Why Super Eagles Will Beat Ivory Coast — Peterside

An ex-Super Eagles goalkeeper, Idah Peterside, has said that the Super Eagles will earn an easy victory over Ivory Coast, ahead of the 2023 CAF African Cup of Nations final on Sunday.

The ex-goalie said that the Nigerian team would defeat the host nation as the former had won the Group A encounter when they met, by 1-0; courtesy of captain Troost-Ekong’s 55th-minute penalty.

In the semi-finals, the Eagles, late Wednesday, defeated the Bafana Bafana of South Africa 4-2 on penalties after a hard-fought full-time game that extended into extra-time and ended 1-1.

Two penalty saves from Nigeria’s goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali, were enough to help the Eagles cement a place in the final stage of the tourney against host nation Ivory Coast.

The Ivorian Elephants also advanced to the final after Dortmund’s Sebastian Haller struck in the 65th minute to book a date with Nigeria.
