#SoarSuperEagles: Reactions As Super Eagles Ignite Hope Of Fourth AFCON, Beat Ivory Coast


After a slow start to the 2023 AFCON campaign, the Super Eagles of Nigeria have ignited the hope of the team winning their fourth African championship.

The Super Eagles who struggled to record a 1-1 draw against Equatorial Guinea on January 14, bounced back from the disappointing draw and grabbed a vital win against the hosts, Ivory Coast earlier today, January 18.

Victor Osimhen whose performance was below average in the game got Nigeria the penalty after he was fouled in the eighteen yard box. The team’s captain, William Troost-Ekong stepped up and converted the kick and that was all the Super Eagles needed to grab their first ever win against Ivory Coast on Ivorian soil.
