The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has sent a message to console Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen following Nigeria’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, final 2-1 defeat to Ivory Coast on Sunday night.
Osimhen, who has been impressive for Nigeria at the 2023 AFCON, failed to lead Jose Peseiro’s side to victory against Ivory Coast.
Society watch reports that Franck Kessie and Sebastien Haller scored for Ivory Coast to ensure they won their third AFCON trophy.
William Troost-Ekong did score for the Super Eagles during the encounter.
In a tweet on X after the game, CAF wrote: “Heads up Victor, you made your country proud.”
