(Watch Video) Haller scores! 81’… Nigeria 1-2 Ivory Coast

It’s another fantastic cross from Adingra and it’s a striker’s finish. Instinctive, he knows where the goal is, Sebastien Haller sticks his leg out.

The outstanding Adingra beat Aina yet again on the left and hammered a superb cross towards the near post. Haller got across Troost-Ekong and improvised ingeniously, lifting his leg well above waist height to stud the ball into the far corner.

It’s Franck Kessie from the corner!

Simon Adingra whips the ball in perfectly, for Kessie to head into the ground and into the net!

Adingra’s deep, driven corner tempted Nwabali from his line. He didn’t get there and could only push Kessie’s downward header into the net as he tried to recover his ground.

That is what they have deserved, and Didier Drogba leads the celebrations for the Cote d’Ivoire faithful!
