Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro says his side won’t be intimidated by the partisan home crowd at the Alassanne Quattara Stadium on Sunday.

Peseiro also said his players will give their all to win the trophy when they face the hosts in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The three-time champions will be confronting Cote d’Ivoire for the second time in the competition.

The Super Eagles defeated the Elephants 1-0 when both teams met in a group game last month.

Peseiro said his players are ready to do a double over the hosts.

“It’s a big game for us, it’s a final, we fought hard to be here. I’m happy for my team.

“We did a fantastic job, amazing job, we deserved to be in the final.

“It’s going to be a tough game in a good stadium. It’s going to be a full stadium which will create a good atmosphere.

“I always prefer to play in a full stadium than an empty one. I believe this will show our commitment and capacity.

“My players must show same desire and commitment on the pitch.”

The encounter will kick-off at 6pm Nigeria time.
