The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has concluded its investigations into the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and has cleared Nigeria and all Super Eagles players of any wrongdoing. The Super Eagles had an impressive run in the tournament, winning five matches, drawing one, and experiencing only one defeat.

Nigeria maintained an unbeaten streak in their first six matches, showcasing their skills and determination on the field.

Unfortunately, they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against the host nation, Cote d’Ivoire, in the final.

However, CAF’s investigations found no infractions on the part of Nigeria and the Super Eagles players.

In contrast, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, and 2021 champions Senegal faced disciplinary actions from the CAF Disciplinary Board.

The Board convened to address various matters and decided to impose sanctions on Mali and Cote d’Ivoire, specifically related to their knockout round clash on February 3rd. The Fédération Malienne de Football faced charges of misconduct due to unsporting behavior by its players towards the match official.

Hamari Traore, in particular, was found guilty of unsporting conduct and received a four-match suspension, with two matches suspended for one year.

Additionally, the Malian Football Federation incurred a fine of 10,000 US Dollars.

While Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal were not directly involved in any disciplinary incidents, they were still sanctioned by the CAF Disciplinary Board.
