Super Eagles star Samuel Chukwueze became the youngest player to score at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) following his strike against South Africa on Wednesday.
Bongani Zungu’s header in the 71st minute, after a VAR review, pegged back Nigeria.
However, with just one minute to the end of normal time, William Troost-Ekong secured the win for the three-time African champions.
Chukwueze’s showing during the match also earned him a Man of the Match award on the night.
Nigeria will now play the winner of the Ivory Coast Vs Algeria match in the semi-final on Sunday, July 14th.
