South Africa - Africa Cup of Nations - 10 July 2019

South Africa's forward Percy Tau celebrates his goal with teammates Lebo Mothiba and Themba Zwane during the 2019 AFCON Group E qualifier football match between Libya and South Africa at Stade Taieb Mhiri in the Tunisian city of Sfax on March

He scored twice and set up Alex Iwobi for the decisive goal in Alexandria as Nigeria rallied from 2-1 down to earn a thrilling 3-2 victory.

The result extends South Africa's record of never having beaten Nigeria at the Cup of Nations, while Gernot Rohr's men moved into the last four - where Ivory Coast of Algeria await - with a disciplined, determined performance.

Nigeria looked too strong all-round for their rivals and almost extended their lead early in the second half with a 25-metre free kick from Oghenekaro Etebo but Ronwen Williams turned it on the bar. It's his first goal for the Super Eagles! .

Their equalizer arrived however in the 70th minute with a big help from VAR, Bongani Zunga directing an effort towards goal when many around, including the linesman, thought he was offside.

Peep! We are underway in Cairo!

"South Africans are not naturally mobile", he added.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is getting more zombie-themed content
It's boasting a map said to be '400%' larger than the fan favourite Nuketown Zombies one, and plenty of new enemies to tackle. Multiple zombie themed characters, weapons, and maps will be introduced into the game over the course of the operation.

Stuart Baxter stuck with the same side that shocked hosts Egypt in the last round, as match-winner Thembinkosi Lorch retained his place despite Themba Zwane's return from suspension. Stewart Baxter keeping faith in the team!

"While I have enjoyed scoring three times in Egypt, it is irrelevant who puts the ball in the net as long as he is a Nigerian".

Chukwueze, overlooked for the 3-2 last 16 win over Cameroon, was a constant menace down the right and created another chance after skipping past his marker but Dean Furman made a timely interception to deny him. They could take a huge step to a third title with a win tonight!

By the time South Africa came calling for a second time in 2017, after the dismissal of Ephraim "Shakes" Mashaba for publicly criticising FA president Danny Jordaan, Baxter had captured a pair of league titles with Kaizer Chiefs following a spell in charge of Finland. Who do you think will progress?

Both teams have met 13 times, with Nigeria running out winners on six occasions, South Africa on the other hand have emerged victors five time and with two ending in a draw. Although they didn't massively impress in the group stages, the first knock-out stage saw them pull of one of the most stunning upsets. Your best bet is to check who is broadcasting the game in your country and see if they have an online platform or iOS or Android app to watch it through.
