The Confederation of African Football, CAF, on Sunday night consoled Super Eagles goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali following Nigeria’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, final 2-1 defeat to Ivory Coast.
Nwabali, who has been impressive for Nigeria at the 2023 AFCON, failed to lead Jose Peseiro’s men to victory against Ivory Coast.
The Chippa United shot-stopper conceded two goals against the host in the final.
Franck Kessie and Sebastien Haller scored for Ivory Coast to ensure they won their third AFCON trophy as William Troost-Ekong’s goal was not enough.
In a tweet on X after the game, CAF wrote: “Maybe it’s the end of the competition, but not the end of the story!
“Heads up, Nwabali. #TotalEnergiesAFCON2023Final.”
