CAN 2024: “It’s thanks to Morocco that we are champions”, the Ivorians celebrate their title in Paris

On the verge of elimination in the group stage, the Ivorians obtained their salvation thanks to Morocco, winner of Zambia, on the last day, to offer an unexpected best third place to the host country. “It was hot, but we got picked up thanks to the Moroccans. Thank God we got there,” breathes Morki, originally from the Abobo Té district, north of Abidjan. Theater of the final, the Ivorian capital held its breath after the Nigerian opened the score, thanks to a header from captain William Troost-Ekong, in the 38th minute. In the Co Lounge bar (14th arrondissement of Paris), smoke escapes from the hookahs, but also from Ismaël’s head, which can no longer hold still. “I’m stressed, but I bet on a 2-1 victory,” he hopes.
