The Super Eagles were gunning for a fourth AFCON title before the Ivorians stopped their ambition in the final.

Reacting to the NFF’s promise to Tinubu, a socio-political commentator said: “For Tinubu or for Nigeria? Why politicize football? What kind of nonsense is this?”

Meanwhile, a burst of joy and jubilation inside Alassane Ouattara Stadium ensued in the Ivorian camp after the final.
