AFCON 2023: Why Super Eagles Lost To Ivory Coast – Daniel Bwala Reveals



AFCON 2023: Why Super Eagles Lost To Ivory Coast – Daniel Bwala Reveals

Former spokesperson to Atiku Abubakar, Daniel Bwala has reacted as Super Eagles lost to Ivory Coast in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.

TopNaija had earlier reported that the Super Eagles lost the AFCON final 2-1 to the Elephants of Ivory Coast in a pulsating game on Sunday night in Abidjan.

in reaction to the defeat, the former spokesperson took to his X handle, formerly Twitter on Sunday night, and said the Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, was the cause of the defeat and loss of the trophy when he changed his tactics against the Ivory Coast side.

According to Daniel Bwala, Peseiro should have stuck to his tactics-flow football and attack instead of defending throughout the match.

He, however, commended the team for an outstanding performance throughout the tournament.


He wrote: “Super Eagles, you did well throughout the tournament.

“If I were the coach I would have stuck to my plans of free flow and attack style which has worked for me throughout the tournament than try to defend and see out the match knowing the home crowd would ginger the Ivorians to sustain the attack pressure.

“The coach’s tactics to defend and see out the match isn’t what we are known for and wasn’t what we used throughout the tournament. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.”
