The television commentators for Nigeria’s match against Côte d’Ivoire at the Africa Cup of Nations last night got too creative, using some unusual words to describe the match.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria beat the Elephants of La Côte d’Ivoire 1-0, through Troost Ekong’s penalty.

What has since caught the world’s attention, have been the colourful dictionary of former Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi.

In a very unorthodox manner, Amokachi said Alex Iwobi ought to have played a more advanced role on order to play “sexy penetrative passes”.

The comments caught viewers snd social media by surprise.

To some, Amokachi’s commentary was so bad that they do not want to see him on duty again.

Meanwhile, others saw the fun side of things.


Thursday’s win mean Nigeria are now second in Group A with four points, one more than hosts La Côte d’Ivoire.

Equatorial Guinea lead the group with four points but have a superior goal difference to Nigeria, while Guinea Bissau are bottom with no points.
