Nigeria’s goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali, expressed deep regret over the Super Eagles’ 2-1 defeat at the hands of Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday, labelling it a disappointing and frustrating conclusion.

In a heartfelt message shared on Instagram, Nwabali extended his apologies to the Nigerian fans for the defeat.

The Super Eagles initially seized the lead in the 18th minute with a header from William Troost-Ekong.

However, Cote d’Ivoire managed to equalize in the 63rd minute and ultimately secured the winning goal in the 87th minute, sparking jubilant celebrations among the hosts and their supporters at the Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara in Abidjan. Nwabali, visibly disheartened, posted a picture of himself on the pitch alongside the caption:

“A disappointing and frustrating end. I deeply apologize to Nigerians. I was once a fan, still a fan and I understand how it feels giving you a disappointing night. We take full responsibility. Thanks for the whole support till the end.

I love you all.” Nigeria’s Goalkeeper Nwabali Apologizes for Disappointing Loss in AFCON Final
