Nigeria have qualified for a semi-final spot in the African Cup of Nations beating South Africa 2-1. William Troost-Ekong scored a dramatic late winner to send Nigeria into the Africa Cup of Nations semi-final.

 

Samuel Chukwueze hit the opener as he controlled Alex Iwobi's cross, before scoring at the second attempt. Bongani Zungu equalized with a header initially ruled out for offside before VAR replays showed a free-kick hit a Nigerian player on the way to him. But Udinese's Troost-Ekong bundled home from close range late on to win it.
