AFCON: Super Eagles march into Semi finals

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are in the semifinals of the African Cup of Nations, following a narrow 1-0 victory over Angola in their quarter-final game on Friday.

Ademola Lookman’s first-half strike was the difference and just enough to see Nigeria pick up the first semi-finals ticket. 

Nigeria thought they had gone 2-0 up when Victor Osimhen headed home a second in the 74th minute, but the goal was ruled out for offside, as the Eagles held on to lead to avoid any turn of events. 

Clearly the better side, the Eagles deserved the win and will be up against the winner of Saturday’s quarter-final game between Cape Verde and South Africa, in the semi finals next week Wednesday.
