The start of the match is rather dominated by the players. by the Éléphants who even created a big opportunity in the 8th minute through Sébastien Haller who had taken over a center of Adingra. The frame slips away but it gives ideas to the men of Emerse Fa. This same Simon Adingra is, this time, & the finish on a nice pass from Franck Kessie but Stanley Nwabali made the first big save of the final (34th). And the elephants will be punished for this lack of realism shortly before returning to the locker room. On a poorly pushed ball by the Ivorian defense, Troost-Ekong moves Aurier and catapults the ball into the back of the net (38th).
