In a widely circulated video on social media, Teni expressed deep disappointment and embarrassment, shedding uncontrollable tears following Nigeria’s loss in the tournament hosted by Ivory Coast.
With high hopes for a fourth AFCON trophy, Teni’s emotions overflowed as the Nigerian team took an early lead with a goal in the first half. However, her expectations were shattered as the Super Eagles ultimately succumbed to a two-to-one defeat.
In the midst of tears, Teni exclaimed, “Ivory Coast, you think you can embarrass me. Somebody please, I need oxygen…you want to embarrass me.”
The African Cup of Nations concluded on Sunday, February 11, with Ivory Coast securing victory over Nigeria.
William Troos-Ekong managed to score the lone goal for Nigeria, but Frank Kessie and Sebastian Haller orchestrated a comeback with two goals for the home side.
Following the defeat, Nigerians on social media, including X, have become targets for mockery, particularly from their Ghanaian neighbors.
The disappointment resonates deeply among fans, and the loss is reverberating across various online platforms.
