AFCON: Nigeria Stop Angola, Advance To Semi-Final

Nigeria were the first side to book a semifinal berth at the Africa Cup of Nations after Ademola Lookman struck again with a first-half goal that ensured the African giants a 1-0 win over Angola in the last eight on Friday.

Lookman finished off a flying run down the left by winger Moses Simon, who skipped the challenge of defender Kialonda Gaspar to break free and then teed up his team mate for his third goal of the tournament.

The 26-year-old’s 41st-minute strike at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium was enough to set up a semi-final meeting on Wednesday against either the Cape Verde Islands or South Africa, who play their quarter-final on Saturday.
