The 40-year-old former international player assumed the role of interim coach as Côte d’Ivoire faced potential elimination from the competition, suffering defeats against Nigeria and a heavy loss to Equatorial Guinea.
Under Fae’s leadership, Côte d’Ivoire orchestrated a remarkable turnaround, eliminating the defending champions Senegal in the round of 16, staging a stunning comeback against Mali in the quarterfinals, and securing a convincing victory over DR Congo in the semifinals.
In the final held at the Alhassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan, the Elephants scripted a memorable comeback, clinching a 2-1 victory over favorites Nigeria.
Marking a historic moment, Côte d’Ivoire claimed their third continental title, adding to their previous Nations Cup triumphs in 1992 and 2015, becoming the first host nation to win since Egypt in 2006.
