Former Nigerian international, Mikel Obi has predicted that the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations will be played between the Super Eagles and Ivory Coast on February 11.
In a chat with The Obi One podcast, the former Chelsea star, stated that Nigeria will overcome Bafana Bafana of South Africa in the semi-final while Ivory will edge DR Congo.
“I think so. I was thinking about it the other day and I was thinking that we managed to beat them in the group stage and they were on the verge of leaving, the tournament and all of a sudden you know, they are back in it and now.
“They have got a wind with them and now are playing prettily okay but not so well, but they have started to win games and now if they can manage to get to the final, who knows?”
