After a month of memories, brilliant goals, heartbreaking defeats, and unending drama, the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) ended on Sunday.
Hosts Ivory Coast defeated Nigeria 1-2 thanks to strikes from Franck Kessie and Sebastien Haller after William Troost-Ekong had given the Super Eagles a first-half lead.
But it was not all disappointing for Nigeria as Troost-Ekong got one of the awards on parade on Sunday night.
