The head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has said Ivory Coast are favourites to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigeria play the hosts on Sunday, looking to lift the title for the fourth time ever.

But Peseiro, speaking to the media today, believes the Ivorians have the advantage.

“Congratulations to Cote d’Ivoire for reaching the final, they are the favourite, but we want to win the AFCON,” Peseiro said.

He however added that he wants to “win the trophy for the people of Nigeria”.

The Eagles defeated Ivory Coast 1-0 earlier in the tournament during the group stages.
