AFCON: Chukwueze,Troost-Ekong sends Nigeria to semi-final


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.
