The Super Eagles of Nigeria has defeated the South Africa 2 – 1 to qualify for the 2019 AFCON Semi Finals.
Goals from Samuel Chukwueze and William Troost-Ekong handed the Super Eagles the win, while Bongani Zungu netted Bafana’s goal
Gernot Rohr made two changes to the team which faced 2017 champions Cameroon in the Round of 16, with Ola Aina replaced by fit-again full-back Jamilu Collins in the starting line-up, while Samuel Chukwueze ousted fellow attacker Moses Simon.
On the other hand, Stuart Baxter named an unchanged team with Thembinkosi Lorch, who netted the goal which earned Bafana Bafana a 1-0 win over the tournament hosts Egypt, making his second successive start.
The match got off to a lively start with both teams searching for an early goal, but neither could land a shot on target in the opening stages of the encounter.
Nigeria’s midfield maestro Wilfred Ndidi fired a powerful long-range shot which flew over the crossbar, before Lorch placed his effort wide of the target at the other end.
