In a dramatic turn of events following Nigeria’s heartbreaking loss to Côte d’Ivoire in the 2023 AFCON finals, a harrowing scene unfolded on the pitch as a woman collapsed.
A video circulating on social media captured the distressing moment when the woman fell to the ground, seemingly overcome by emotion or perhaps a medical condition exacerbated by the intense match.
As she lay unconscious on the field, a team of health experts rushed to her aid, swiftly attending to her. With concern etched on their faces, they worked diligently to assess her condition and provide immediate medical assistance.
In a bid to aid her breathing and ensure proper ventilation, the woman was carefully fanned as part of the emergency response measures.
Ivory Coast made history by becoming the first host nation since Egypt in 2006 to clinch the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title, following their thrilling victory over Nigeria on Sunday night.
Sebastien Haller emerged as the hero once again for the Elephants, orchestrating a remarkable comeback to secure a 2-1 win.
This triumph marked a remarkable turnaround for the Ivorians, who overcame adversity, including the departure of coach Jean-Louis Gasset after two defeats in the group stage, to claim their third continental title. Building on their previous Nations Cup victories in 1992 and 2015, Ivory Coast cemented their status as champions and became the first host nation to lift the trophy since Egypt in 2006.
