AFCON host nation Ivory Coast defeated the DR Congo side in the second semi-final encounter on Wednesday, making their way to the final.

Coming into the game, Ivory Coast were the favourites to secure the win at stake and that was how it was at the end of the match.

The two teams failed to find the back of the net in the first period despite the chances that were created in the mix.

However, the host nation proved their dominance as they got the goal they needed after the break.

After the Intermission, Ivory Coast skipper Serge Aurier surged forward and delivered a cross into the box which Borussia Dortmund star Sebastian Haller was fortunate to make contact to volley home into the net for the opening goal of the contest.


The only goal here came in the 65th minute of the match as it was enough to seal a 1-0 win for Ivory Coast.

It finished 1-0 in favour of the host Nation who now set up a date with the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the AFCON final on Sunday.
