The host nation, Ivory Coast, defeated the Nigerian national football team, the super Eagles, in the AFCON 2023 finals Sunday night.
Captain William Troost Ekong’s outstanding header gave the Super Eagles the lead early in the first half of the match, but they were unable to hold onto their advantage and ultimately lost by a score of two goals to one.
Ghanaians have responded to the disappointing loss for the Nigerians in a variety of ways on social media. The Ghanaians have chosen to lead a troll and poke fun at their West African neighbours, while the Nigerians are tallying their losses.
With their victory, Nigeria would have tied Ghana’s record of four African Cup of Nations victories. At the moment, Nigeria owns three AFCON trophies.
Celebrities from Ghana, including Manifest, Black Sherif, Kidi, John Dumelo, Bridget Otoo, and others, have made fun of their fellow Nigerians.
