Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala has replied to Ghanaians for mocking Nigerians following their Africa Cup of Nations defeat to Ivory Coast.

Oshoala, who is very active on X, formerly Twitter, responded to Ghanaians taking a dig at journalists for attacking their players after the Black Stars' exit at the group stage.

"At least our own journalists no go beat our players …..who @PoojaMedia go fit beat for that team sef #AFCON2023," she wrote after the match.

Some journalists from Ghana went viral following their reaction after the Black Stars let a two-goal lead slip against Mozambique, leading to the country's exit from the tournament.

The media men at the Stade Alassane Ouattara on that night booed players and officials of the Black Stars as they walked out of the mixed zone, as reported by Pulse.

Nigeria's run to the final saw them eliminate Cameroon, Angola and South Africa before falling to Ivory Coast.

Ghanaians troll Nigerians after AFCON loss

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that 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.

Sports Brief also reported that Sebastien Haller netted the winner as Ivory Coast came from a goal down to beat Nigeria in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations.

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

The host nation dominated the early exchanges with the Brighton forward coming close after meeting a cross from the left sent on by the lively Simon Adingra.
