Nigeria are through to the semi-final of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations competition after 2–1 win over Bafana Bafana of South Africa.
Goals from Samuel Chukwueze and William Troost-Ekong helped the Super Eagles to book a space further as they progressed into the next level of the Nations top league.
Chukwueze had opened the score line in the 27th minute before Bongani Zungu equalised with a header initially ruled out for offside before VAR replays showed a free-kick hit a Nigerian player on the way to him.
Udinese’s Troost-Ekong then bundled home from close range late at the 89th minute into an empty net after goalkeeper Ronwen Williams totally missed Moses Simon’s corner.
Nigerian Super Eagle will now tackle Ivory Coast or Algeria on Sunday for the second semi-final.
