The Super Eagles on Wednesday defeated the Bafana Bafana of South Africa by two goals to one.

The first 45 minutes of the game ended in a 1-0 in favour of Nigeria.

Nigeria’s second goal came in the 88th minute through William Troost-Ekong following Moses Simon crossing from a resulting corner which dropped in a free space before finding the net to make it 2-1 for Nigeria.

However, the Ex-Super Eagles captain while reacting to the victory said Nigerians are proud of the team’s performance.

“The boys gave it a great teamwork effort and push. We are all proud. Nigeria officially through to the #caf2019 semifinals. We thank God.”

The victory over South Africa means Nigeria will now play the winner between Ivory Coast and Algeria in the semi-final on Sunday.
