Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana will be vying for the Africa Cup of Nations crown when they meet in the final on Sunday evening.

The Elephants secured their spot in the final after defeating Congo DR 3-1 in the semi-final, courtesy of goals from Yaya Toure, Gervinho and Wilfied Kanon.
 
While, the Black Stars put in an impressive showing, beating the hosts Equatorial Guinea 3-0 in the semi-final clash.
