Nigeria defeats South Africa 2-1


Up Super Eagles! Nigeria has defeated South Africa 2-1. William Troost-Ekong sent Nigeria through to the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations after a tense 2-1 victory over South Africa in Cairo.

Samuel Chukwueze fired the Super Eagles ahead in the first half in front of a healthy, largely pro-Nigerian crowd at the 75,000-capacity Cairo International Stadium.

But Bongani Zungu’s looping header brought South Africa level on 70 minutes, the goal awarded with the aid of VAR — introduced for the first time at the tournament from the quarter-final stage onwards, after it was initially ruled out for offside.
