    Nigeria vs South Africa: 5 things we learnt as Super Eagles qualify for semi-final

    The Super Eagles will play in the Africa Cup of Nations semi-last, after they beat South Africa 2-1 on Wednesday.

    Samuel Chukwueze gave the Nigerians the lead in the main half, before Bongani Zungu leveled for South Africa following a VAR choice.

    William Troost-Ekong got the victor in the withering seconds of the game.

    Anyway, what are the five things we gained from the match?

    1. Chukwueze is a star: That is the principal thing that rings a bell in the wake of viewing 90minutes of that game. The Villarreal was a predictable threat for the South Africans all through, with his zippy developments and velvet spilling abilities. Happy that Gernor Rohr picked him and he likewise scored his first objective for Nigeria.

    2. Musa still not advocating his determination: Before this game, Rohr continued forever about Musa's understanding, as the reason he is choosing the Al Nassr winger in front of Henry Onyekuru. In any case, indeed, Musa did not go to the gathering. He was all pace and no closure item. Musa is the motivation behind why the Super Eagles were not far out significantly time.

    3. VAR nearly takes the features: As soon as Zungu set out in toward 1-1, for all intents and purposes everybody shouted offside. Infact, the linesmen waved his banner, as the midfielder wheeled away. Be that as it may, VAR, which becomes an integral factor from the quarter-finals, had another look and recognized that the ball returned off Ighalo's.

    4. South Africa not all that: Credit to Rohr, he set up his group to invalidate Bafana and make them insufficient at their heavenly counter-assaulting style. Despite the fact that there are times they taken steps to separate Nigeria, the Eagles' protection held firm.

    5. Up next, Ivory Coast or Algeria: Nigeria won't assume the victor of the quarter-last conflict between Ivory Coast and Algeria. It is probably going to be the North Africans, as they have been shocking all competition. Time to take a rest and get ready for the following extreme installation.
