AFCON team of tournament: Troost-Ekong, Lookman, Adingra in; Osimhen missing

The official 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) lineup, which features three Super Eagles players, has been revealed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Following an incredible comeback victory against Nigeria in Sunday’s final, hosts Ivory Coast emerged victorious in what was hailed as the greatest AFCON history, winning 2-1.

Bafana Bafana, who placed third—their best finish in 24 years—had a spectacular tournament as well.

Bafana captain Ronwen Williams was chosen Goalkeeper of the Tournament, and Nigerian captain William Troost-Ekong was named Player of the Tournament. Emilio Nsue of Equatorial Guinea won the Golden Boot with five goals.

CAF named Williams and Teboho Mokoena to the official Tournament Team, while Khuliso Mudau, who had been largely expected to make the cut, was left out.

Ola Aina, Troost-Ekong, and Ademola Lookman are Nigeria’s three representatives, while Ivory Coast has three: Franck Kessie, Jean Michael Seri, and Ghislan Konan.

The official Best XI is completed by DRC players Chancel Mbemba and Yoane Wissa, as well as Golden Boot winner Emilio Nsue.
