Tinubu Commend Super Eagles

The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) quarterfinal matchup between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Palancas Negras of Angola will take place.

Both teams won their matches on Saturday, securing a draw for the AFCON final eight.

Gelson Dala scored twice to help Angola shrugged off the early dismissal of goalkeeper Neblu to beat 10-man Namibia.

Mabululu’s neat finish following a quick counter-attack midway through the second half sealed the win and advanced the Palancas Negras to the last eight for the first time since 2010.

For Nigeria, Atalanta’s Ademola Lookman scored twice in each half to help Nigeria get past five-time Champions, Cameroon on Saturday, and seal a place in the last eight.
