Nigeria went ahead in the 38th minute. William Troost-Ekong scored from a corner after a deflected aerial ball came around his head. The team captain converted the opportunity and the Super Eagles lead at the end of the first half.

Just above the hour mark, the Elephants won a corner. Franck Kessie headed the ball into the back of the net to level the score.

Simon Adingra showed some trickery on the left flank and delivered a cross into the penalty box. Sebastien Haller got to the end of the cross and scored with an acrobatic finish. This turned out to be his second winner in as many games. Adingra was named as the man of the match.
