The Super Eagles of Nigeria will play hosts Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Nigeria’s substitute Kelechi Iheanacho scored to give Nigeria a 4-2 penalty shootout victory over South Africa last after the semi-final tie ended 1-1 in regulation time and extra time in Bouake.

On the other hand, Sebastien Haller fired hosts Ivory Coast into the Africa Cup of Nations final with a 1-0 win over the Democratic Republic of Congo in Abidjan 

It will be the eighth final appearance by Nigeria, who were champions in 1980, 1994 and 2013, and the fourth by 1992 and 2015 title winners Ivory Coast.
