Heading For The Semis

Peter Etebo

PETER ETEBO is a step closer to African Cup of Nations glory after his Nigeria side booked a place in the Semi-Finals.

The midfielder played the full 90 minutes as the Super Eagles beat South Africa 2-1 to secure a place in the last four of the competition.

Nigeria left it awfully late to progress as they scored an 89th minute winner courtesy of Udinese’s William Troost-Ekong.

Nigeria went in front through Samuel Chukwueze but Bongani Zungu equalised with a header initially ruled out for offside before VAR replays showed a free-kick hit a Nigerian player on the way to him.

Nigeria will go head-to-head with Ivory Coast or Algeria in Sunday's semi-final.
