This matchup between Nigeria and the Ivory Coast proved to be tough, as they won 1-0 thanks to a penalty kick from Ekong. Although Real Madrid appeared to be headed toward their first-ever treble, their rival’s strengths has scattered them.

Exciting updates in sports! Glad to see Ivan Toney back for Brentford. Equatorial Guinea’s win in AFCON is promising. Concerned about Salah’s injury but impressed with the 2-2 draw between Egypt and Ghana. Super Eagles’ 1-0 win against Ivory Coast is a relief, and unfortunate for Real Madrid to exit the Copa Del Rey. Football emotions running high!
