Nigeria 1-2 Ivory Coast: Haller’s strike gives the Elephants their dream home AFCON win

Sebastian Haller's brilliantly improvised finish was enough to complete a dream AFCON final win for Ivory Coast as they came from behind to beat Nigeria 2-1.

The Borussia Dortmund forward completed an incredible storyline after recovering from testicular cancer to secure his country’s third ever AFCON trophy.

The Elephants had endured a rocky way to the final, losing twice and acking head coach Jean-Louis Gasset.

Meanwhile a starstudded Nigeria side had cruised through the group stages before fending off a spirited South Africa side on penalties.

But it was Haller who had the last laugh, stabbing home a quality finish to send the home crowd wild.
