April 28, 2013 – Ivory Coast Wins Under 17 CAF Cup, Defeats Nigeria
On Saturday in the under 17 CAF cup final in Morocco, Ivory coast defeated Nigeria.
The two teams have good set of players and it’s very obvious the Ivorians produced over age players (wuruwuru thingz)
In the second half of the match, a Nigerian player who elbowed an Ivorian striker got a red card this made Naija to play with only 10 players.
The tough match ended with 1-1 and the two teams immediately proceeded to penalties.
Ivory coast scored all their penalties while Nigerian players scored 4 out of 5.
It was a very painful game for Nigerians because one of our players with Jersey #11 apparently fired the ball straight into the goalkeeper’s hands instead of shooting it in the opposite direction.
This makes Ivory coast’s 1st Under 17 cup victory.
