Game started with a series of set pieces for Cote d’Ivoire.

They spent the first 30 minutes sending in crossese that were comfortably repelled. 

The cooling break at 30 minutes was not just necessary because of the humidity but also because nerves were getting frayed and tempers rising.

The Ivorians came out sharper out of the blocks, forcing a save out of Stanley Nwabali 

Nigeria soaked up pressure, with only 37% of possession until William Troost-Ekong scored with a towering header off a corner kick in the 37th minute. 

Cote d’Ivoire scored off a corner of their own in the 64th minute after Frank Kessie beat Nwabali on his near post from a free header.

Then Sebastian Haller scored off an Adingra cross in the 81st. 

Details later…
