Nigeria beats Angola to qualify for the CHAN 2018 Semi-finals

The home-based Super Eagles have beaten their Angolan counterparts to qualify for the semifinal at the ongoing African Nations Championships in Morocco.

After a barren first half in which the two sides missed brilliant possibilities, the Angola team got the lead in the 55th minute.

The Eagles had to come from behind to secure a 2-1 win over Angola after extra time.


It was looking like the end of the road for the Nigerian team until Anthony Okpotu rescued the team with a very late equalizer in the 91st minute.

With the game stretching into extra time, one of the new entrants, Gabriel Okechukwu, saved the day for Nigeria with a well-taken goal.

Nigeria will now play Sudan in the semi-final.
