"Tactically, Nigeria was so poor, looked lost in the game. Côte D'Ivoire dominated every department of the game right from the start, great in possession, won ball recoveries, controlled the midfield and looked promising in attack. Adingra was a joy to watch, my man of the match. Well deserved win, congratulations to Côte D'Ivoire."

Nigerians vent their anger on Okocha’s daughter

Angered Nigerians descended on Daniella Okocha, daughter of renowned Super Eagles star Jay Jay Okocha. This was after the Super Eagles lost to Ivory Coast in the AFCON final.

Many Nigerians were upset that the Super Eagles saved their worst performance for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations final, where they lost 2-1 to host country Ivory Coast.

However, the team's midfielder, Alexander Chuka Iwobi (nephew to Jay Jay Okocha), has received most of the heat, with several callouts on the internet over his performance in this year's tournament.
