Cote d’Ivoire forward Sebastian Haller says the Elephants want to avenge their defeat to Nigeria in the group stage of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The hosts will battle the Super Eagles for the ultimate prize at the Alassanne Ouattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan, on Sunday.
Emerse Fae’s side lost 1-0 to the Super Eagles in the group stage earlier in the competition.
Haller, however, said the Elephants want a revenge and the title this time around.
“We are playing the final against Nigeria. It is a great nation. It is heavy. They beat us in the group stage,” Haller said to BeIn SPORTS.
“But we are already motivated to go and lift the trophy on Sunday in this stadium in front of the Ivorian people. We have revenge to take on Nigeria.”
The encounter will kick-off at 9pm Nigerian time.
