AFCON 2019: Super Eagles sack Bafana Bafana, cruise into semi-final
Nigeria’s Super Eagles of Nigeria have earned a semi-final ticket in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after defeating South Africa’s Bafana Bafana 2-1 at the Cairo International Stadium.
A 90th minute masterstroke by William Ekong’s dealt the cruelest blow to Stuart Baxter’s side, who had fought back to level in an even contest.
Meanwhile, the South African side could not muster the fire power 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, accordingly, gave Nigeria a slot in the last four of the tournament.
