AFCON: Okocha reacts to Super Eagles’ 1-0 win over Ivory Coast

Nigeria legend, Austin Okocha has reacted to Super Eagles’ 1-0 win over Ivory Coast at the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

Okocha, who was at the Stade Olympique Ouattara on Thursday, heaped praises on Jose Peseiro’s men for their performance against the hosts.

A penalty by captain William Troost-Ekong gave Nigeria all three points against Ivory Coast.

Okocha believes the result has put the Super Eagles in a good position to advance from Group A to the knock-out stage.

“It was an important victory for us. It puts us in a very good position,” Okocha said to France 24.

“It was a very difficult game, it is never easy to play against the host but we showed a lot of character today and deservingly we won the game.

“It is always difficult to play at home, the pressure is always on you and Côte d’Ivoire love their football.

“They just don’t want to win, they want to win in style which puts the player under a lot of pressure but I think they still have a good chance of going far in the tournament.”
