The pressure is on for Nigeria as they seek football immortality in the AFCON 2023 final. The Super Eagles take on Cote d’Ivoire or DR Congo eying a fourth continental title on Sunday.

Having swept past South Africa on penalties in a drama-filled semi on Wednesday, Nigeria now stand on the cusp of greatness. Victory would cement their status as one of AFCON’s most successful nation.

With 3 previous titles in 1980, 1994 and 2013, Nigeria can go joint fourth title with their arch rivals Ghana while Egypt and Cameroon are in the lead. j

Doing so would cap a dominant tournament for Nigeria. They have won 5 of 6 games so far, spearheaded by stars Victor Osimhen and Ademola Lookman.

Osimhen especially knows a defining performance could await. The Napoli hotshot has consistently led Nigeria’s charge, but his only goal came back in the group stage.

Nigeria beat Ivory Cost 2-1 in 2013 AFCON quater-final.

As Nigeria aim to turn consistent performers into AFCON immortals, Osimhen’s big-game pedigree may prove pivotal. A match-winning display would elevate him into Nigerian folklore

Hosts Cote d’Ivoire stand in their way, hoping to spoil the party in front of home crowds. But Nigeria carry momentum, belief and a steely winning mentality under manager Jose Peseiro.

After falling short in four previous finals, Peseiro is urging his squad to seize the moment. The Super Eagles appear laser-focused with history within touching distance.

No matter Sunday’s outcome, Nigeria have lit up AFCON 2023. Playing with flair, unity and humble modesty, they have won admirers worldwide.

Now the Super Eagles stand on the brink of history. Bring home the trophy and they will forever be remembered as legends in Nigeria.
