The Ivory Coast's remarkable journey in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) continues as they advance to the final,

overcoming DR Congo 1-0 with Sebastien Haller scoring the decisive goal.

Despite a shaky start in the group stage which led to the dismissal of their head coach,

they now stand on the brink of claiming their first AFCON title on home soil after a composed performance.

DR Congo, making their first semi-final appearance since 2015, had a goal disallowed early on.

Ivory Coast had several chances in the first half, including Haller's missed header and Kessie's shot hitting the post.

The deadlock was finally broken by Haller in the second half with a well-taken volley, securing the victory for the host nation.

Despite DR Congo's efforts to equalize, Ivory Coast held on to secure their spot in the final against Nigeria.

The team's resurgence under interim coach Emerse Fae has been remarkable, especially after narrowly escaping elimination in the group stage.

With momentum on their side and a sense of destiny, Ivory Coast poses a formidable challenge for Nigeria in the final.

Simon Adingra, the 22-year-old winger, was awarded the Player of the Match for his outstanding performance during the game.
