The Super Eagles of Nigeria are through to the semi-finals of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after defeating the Bafana Bafana of South Africa 2-1 at the Cairo International Stadium.

 

William Ekong’s last gasp winner dealt the cruelest blow to Stuart Baxter’s side, who had fought back to level in an even contest at Cairo’s International Stadium.

 

The Bafana Bafana couldn’t muster the intensity that saw them put the wind up host nation Egypt from the get-go in the round of 16.

 

Samuel Chukwueze and William Troost-Ekong’s goals were enough to seal Nigeria’s place in the last four of the tournament.

The Super Eagles will face either Algeria or Ivory Coast in the second semifinal match to be played on Sunday 14th July.
