    Ivory Coast has won the 2023 edition of the AFCON by defeating Nigeria 2-1 at the continent’s premier football competition. Ivory Coast won AFCON the hard way:

    Heartbreak for Nigeria

    As much as I was rooting for Nigeria, no team that sets up to defend for 90 minutes deserves to win a final. No team that canโ€™t even string together two passes when the pressure is on the line deserves to win. This was their biggest match in a decade and they blew it.
