Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has hailed Nigeria’s Super Eagles for qualifying for the semi-final stage of the Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON 2019.
They defeated South Africa 2-1 on Wednesday.
Samuel Chukwueze gave the Eagles a 1-0 lead at the break, latching onto his own rebound to slot past the goalkeeper.
However, Bafana Bafana levelled in the second half, thanks to Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decision.
With the match looking to head into extra time, William Troost-Ekong forced the ball over the line in the final minute of play.
Reacting, Atiku said, “Congratulations @NGSuperEagles. Great play. Now we are successfully one step away from playing for gold. We are solidly behind you all the way. #NGARSA #TotalAFCON2019,” he tweeted.
