The lone goal was enough for the hosts of the 2023 AFCON to enter the final of the tournament where they will meet the Super Eagles of Nigeria who knocked out South Africa via penalties earlier on Wednesday, February 7.

The 2023 AFCON final between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Ivory Coast will take place at the Olympic Stadium of Ebimpé by 9 p.m. on Sunday, February 11.
