The Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire secured their spot in the semi-finals of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations after a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Mali in the quarter-final match at the Stade Bouaké on Saturday.

Mali took the lead in the 71st minute through N. Dorgeles, but S. Adingra’s late goal forced the game into extra time. In the 120th minute, O. Diakite scored a crucial goal to secure the win for the host nation and avoid a penalty shootout.

Both teams received one red card each during the match.

As the host nation of the AFCON, Cote d’Ivoire will now face DR Congo in the semi-finals on Wednesday. DR Congo advanced to the last four after defeating Guinea 3-1 in their quarter-final match on Friday.
