Nigeria Vs Angola: Super Eagles Eye First AFCON Semis In Five Years

The Super Eagles started the AFCON on a shaky note, drawing Equatorial Guinea before slim wins over hosts Cote d’Ivoire and then Guinea-Bissau to reach the knockouts with seven points. But they have grown in the tournament.

Friday’s opponents also had the same number of points but did impress. The Angolans drew 2019 winners Algeria before seeing off Mauritania and Burkina Faso to finish top of Group D.

These and more today at 6pm as Nigeria go head-to-head with Angola in today’s quarterfinal game.
