Super Eagles eliminate South Africa reach AFCON 2019 semi-finals


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 90th-minute 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.  

Bafana couldn’t muster the intensity that saw them put the wind up host nation Egypt from the get-go the previous weekend.

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