CHAN Eagles Reach Q-Finals After Hard Fought Victory Against Angola


The home-based Super Eagles fought back from a goal down to beat Angola 2-1 after extra-time in the quarter-finals of the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) inTangier, Morocco on Sunday.

This is the second time the home-based Eagles will be making it to the semi-final since their debut in 2014 in South Africa where they finished third.

Vladimir Va’s goal looked to be enough to send Angola through but Anthony Okpotu scored a late goal to send the game into extra-time.

Substitute Okechukwu settled the match in the 109th minute when he slalomed past two Angolan defenders before slamming a left-footed effort past Landu.

The win takes Nigeria through to a semi final against Sudan in Marrekech on Wednesday as the Super Eagles remain on course to match their best CHAN finish - third in 2014.
