However the guests the visitors took the lead in the 12th minute after Kapho Nina’s fine free-kick beat Chiamaka Nnadozie.
Ange N’guessan went close to doubling the advantage for the Ivorian side but Asisat Oshoala restored parity for Nigeria in the 34th minute when she latched onto a through pass.
Rasheedat Ajibade received a pass as the Falcons enjoyed some moments of possession early in the second half but her final touch let her down while a Francisca Ordega shot cannoned off the cross bar in the 57th minute albeit she was flagged offside.
Only one team will represent Africa at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
