From fear to an explosion of joy, Didier Drogba paraded in the stands during the final

Ivorian legend Didier Drogba was present in the stands of the Alassane Ouattara Olympic Stadium, and was photographed in all his states during the African Cup of Nations final between Nigeria and Ivory Coast, which the Ivorians won on Sunday.

In one hell of a state. Didier Drogba, who came to watch the Africa Cup of Nations final between Nigeria and Ivory Coast on Sunday at the Alassane Ouattara Olympic Stadium (2-1 win), lived the Elephants match to the fullest.

Didier Drogba, wearing his official 2023 Africa Cup of Nations jersey, came to present the trophy to the Ivorian stadium packed with nearly 57,000 spectators. It was widely praised by many of the locals in attendance.

During the match, the Ivorian legend was initially afraid of a dangerous opportunity from Simon Adingra, who made the wrong choice against Noubali, so he shot it at the near post (34).

He then looked very upset when Nigeria scored a 1-0 winner in the 38th minute thanks to William Troost-Ekong. Didier Drogba, who was often filmed by local directors, went through all the emotions before experiencing the editing.

Before he literally exploded on Franck Kessie's goal, he scored in the 62nd minute with a header from an Adingra corner kick.

However, the cameras did not find Didier Drogba in the stands during the 2-1 winning goal scored by Sebastien Haller in the 81st minute. We saw him celebrating the Ivorian's victory after the final whistle, and the Elephants goalkeeper came to jump into his arms.
