Sebastien Haller wins it for Ivory Coast! His sumptuous touch late in the game was worthy of winning any football game, especially an Africa Cup of Nations.
In the 82nd minute, Brighton star Simon Adingra picked the ball up on the left wing and drove beyond his man before firing a cross to the near post. Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastien Haller made a run to the front post and stretched out a leg to expertly divert the ball beyond the Nigeria keeper.
