Despite Nwabali’s notable performances for Nigeria throughout the 2023 AFCON, he couldn’t lead Jose Peseiro’s team to victory, conceding two goals against the host nation, Ivory Coast. Franck Kessie and Sebastien Haller found the net for Ivory Coast, securing their third AFCON trophy, while William Troost-Ekong’s goal was not sufficient for Nigeria.

In a post-game tweet, CAF conveyed their support, stating, “Maybe it’s the end of the competition, but not the end of the story! Heads up, Nwabali. #TotalEnergiesAFCON2023Final.”
