AFCON: List of Years Super Eagles Won the Trophy and Teams They Defeated

Tonight, the eyes of Africa and the football world turn to Ivory Coast’s Stade de la Paix, where the mighty Super Eagles of Nigeria face off against the determined Elephants of Ivory Coast in the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations final. This highly anticipated clash promises fireworks as both teams seek to etch their names onto the continental trophy. Nigeria, hungry for their fourth AFCON title, faces a fired-up Ivorian side buoyed by home advantage and their own desire to lift the trophy for the first time since 1992.

Nigeria’s AFCON Victories:

  • 1980: Nigeria defeated Algeria in the final.
  • 1994: Nigeria defeated Zambia in the final.
  • 2013: Nigeria defeated Burkina Faso in the final.

The Super Eagles arrive at the final riding a wave of momentum. A dramatic penalty shootout victory over South Africa in the semi-final displayed their resilience and fighting spirit. Coach Jose Peseiro has instilled a sense of unity and purpose in the squad, evident in their strong defensive performances and timely goals. However, Nigeria hasn’t had the smoothest path to the final. They stumbled in the group stage, narrowly defeating Sierra Leone and drawing with Angola before edging out Egypt in a tense encounter. Injuries have also played a role, with key players like Leon Balogun and Wilfred Ndidi ruled out.

Standing in their way are the Elephants of Ivory Coast. The host nation enters the final with renewed confidence after overcoming a shaky start to the tournament. Led by the prolific Sébastien Haller, they boast an attacking threat that Nigeria’s defense must neutralize. The passionate Ivorian crowd will undoubtedly roar them on, creating a cauldron-like atmosphere for the Super Eagles to navigate.
