Ghanaian football fans have taken to social media to troll rivals, Nigeria, following their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations defeat to Ivory Coast.

The Super Eagles threw away a first-half lead to lose 2-1 to the host nation on Sunday at the Alassane Outtara Stadium in Ebimpe.

William Troost-Ekong, who was named the tournament's best player, opened the scoring before Franck Kessie levelled things after the break.

The Elephants' Sebastien Haller netted the winner late in the game.

Following Nigeria's defeat, social media has been set ablaze by fans of the two countries, with Ghanaians taking the trolling to the max.

How Ghanaians reacted to Nigeria's defeat

@gyaigyimi was clever in their remark:

"Nigerians are Accraing"

"Ghanaians start charging your phones. You need enough battery power to deal with the Nigerians after this game"

@GR1FF1THSTM7 tweeted:

"Nigerians were making all that noise for us last week just to lose in the final, THANK YOU IVORY COAST"

@samgeirgegh added:

"Dear Ivoriens, we know you guys are not on Twitter. Worry not, Ghanaians are here for you. What are neighbours for? We would cook those noisy giant birds nu! No AFCON. No Grammy. No Light. No Fuel. Most importantly, NO NOISE!"

@Tyreeck_112 also wrote:

"No Grammy & No AFCON. SA we got your Amapiano back in blood"

@biawuri tweeted:

"No Grammy, no afcon, no light. what an L year for my brethren and it just started"

@iLati posted:

"Someone said Nigerians “Accra-ing” because they didn’t CEDIS coming"

Haller powers Ivory Coast to victory

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ivory Coast's Haller scored the winner as the hosts came from a goal down to beat Nigeria in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Super Eagles took the lead before half-time through Troost-Ekong but Kessie levelled for the Elephants after the break before Haller finished off the game in style.
