AFCON 2023 Final: Ivorian star Sebastien Haller opens up on how he will deal with Nigeria’s defence

Ivory Coast striker Sebastien Haller has revealed his strategy for facing Nigeria’s formidable defense and physical prowess.

After scoring the decisive goal in Ivory Coast’s semifinal victory against DR Congo, Haller is ready to lead Emerse Fae’s team in their pursuit of AFCON glory on home soil against the Super Eagles.


Despite returning from injury and registering one goal in three matches, the 29-year-old forward aims to present a significant challenge to Nigeria’s defense, acknowledged as the most robust in the tournament.

Spearheaded by Greece-based central defender William Troos-Ekong, the Super Eagles’ backline has conceded only two goals in six matches, showcasing their defensive strength.

Although Nigeria’s defensive record highlights their formidable nature, Haller remains undeterred, anticipating a challenging encounter at the Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara on Sunday.
