Cote d’Ivoire head coach Emerse Fae says his team’s desire is to keep the Africa Cup of Nations trophy at home and add a third star to their orange jersey.

Les Elephants will confront the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations at the Alassanne Ouattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan, on Sunday.

The hosts were on the verge of elimination after losing their last two group games to Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea.

Fae’s side have however made a remarkable comeback to earn a place in the final.

They are now just one match away from replicating their 1992 and 2015 success.

“Tomorrow, we have a great opportunity to keep the trophy at home. We know that when you organize a tournament, it is difficult to go on and win it,” Fae said during his interaction with the media at the Palacais de la culture, Trechville, Abidjan on Saturday.

“We have made the final and tomorrow, we have the opportunity to achieve this feat and at the same time, add a third star to the orange jersey of Côte d’Ivoire.”
