AFCON 2023: Cote d’Ivoire coach, Fae reveals mission against Nigeria



AFCON 2023 Cote dIvoire coach Fae reveals mission against Nigeria

The coach of Cote d’Ivoire, Emerse Fae, states that his team’s goal is to retain the Africa Cup of Nations trophy and secure a third star for their orange jersey. Les Elephants are set to face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations at the Alassanne Ouattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan, on Sunday. Despite facing the prospect of elimination after losing their last two group games, the hosts have staged a remarkable comeback to earn a spot in the final, leaving them just one match away from matching their 1992 and 2015 successes. Fae expressed the team’s determination to seize the opportunity to keep the trophy at home, acknowledging the difficulty of winning a tournament that a team is hosting. He made these comments during a media interaction at the Palacais de la culture, Trechville, Abidjan on Saturday.
