An Ivorian football fan, Anselme Santos, will need more than an apology to his wife and family after he was caught on camera desperately trying to woo a woman in the stands during the round of 16 match between Ivory Coast and Senegal.
Santos was seen desperately trying to engage a beautiful lady in the stands of the Stade Charles Konan Banny de Yamoussoukro after Ivory Coast beat defending champions Senegal.
According to Actu Foot, Santos expressed remorse for any distress his actions could have caused to his wife and children.
Santos said: “In the euphoria, I told her ‘give your number’. It wasn’t mean, but she didn’t want to. So I didn’t insist. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to the lady, my wife, and my children,” he said via Actu Foot.
