Nigeria sink South Africa to storm Afcon semi-finals

Lebo Mothiba of South Africa

All eyes are on Madagascar as they look to cause another major upset having already defeated three-time winners Nigeria and DR Congo, the Africa Cup of Nations winners in 1968 and 1974.

They face an Algeria team in Suez (17:00 BST) that have won all four games, scored nine goals and are yet to concede.

For South Africa, the 2019 edition of the Africa Cup Of Nations has been one to remember.

"We have to think about that one, but we should be under no illusions that Nigeria are one of the best teams on the continent, they have been stable under Gernot Rohr so it will be a massive and hard game for us".

Now up against each other after two intriguing clashes, both Nigeria and South Africa will be quietly confident of coming out of this with a win.

Debris is strewn all over a auto park in another shocking clip. "A search has been completed of the building itself", Gordon said. Residents reported feeling their homes shake from several miles away. 'We believe that.

Due to Nigeria's loss to Madagascar, the team have earned R460 000 so far, R141 000 for each of group stage wins plus another R177 000 for reaching the last 16 and R212 000 for qualifying for the quarter-finals. And one game doesn't make us favourites.

Against the fast and daring Bafana Bafana of South Africa tonight, it is most likely that coach Gernot Rohr will again consider Simon ahead of Chukwueze so as to help out in a rather shaky defence when the need arises. When we hit that balance between good organisation and still getting the ball in play and playing with pace‚ and closing people down at pace‚ and using the natural inherent ability and technique‚ we can give anybody on this continent a good game.

"I didn't say I'm not interested but we are here as a team and want to try and win it as a team. We will have to produce a very good South Africa performance to beat them". "I think everybody here has been criticised one way or another but you don't let that get to you", said Ighalo.

"It's true that Cameroon are not here, the big favourites are no longer here today".

On July 10, Mané's side take on Benin, who narrowly edged their way through the last 16 with a penalty shootout triumph over Morocco following a 1-1 draw at the end of extra time.
