Ivory Coast and Nigeria are set to play in the Africa Cup of Nations, with the match potentially determining the first position in Group A.

Ivory Coast is currently leading after a 2-0 victory over Guinea-Bissau, under French manager Jean-Louis Gasset.

Nigeria, led by Victor Osimhen, has been struggling to establish their superiority in the match and is now aiming to recover momentum.

Nigeria last won a tournament in 2013, while Ivory Coast won their second championship two years after that.

Victor Osimhen, a Napoli striker, is reportedly in high demand among European clubs, but has no immediate plans to transfer to England.

The match will be held at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium, which has a seating capacity of 60,012 individuals.

The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations has been rescheduled and will be hosted by Ivory Coast, while Senegal aims to retain their championship title.

Morocco secured their initial triumph in the AFCON tournament against Tanzania, securing a decisive 3-0 victory.
