AFCON 2023: Nigeria Beat South Africa On Penalties, Advance To Final

The Nigerian national football team, known as the Super Eagles, triumphed over South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in a thrilling penalty shootout, securing their spot in the African Cup of Nations finals. The decisive moment came when Victor Osimhen was fouled in the box by Mothobi Mvala, leading to a penalty kick converted by Captain William Troost-Ekong.

Despite initially thinking they had a 2-0 lead, Nigeria’s goal was overturned after a VAR review, resulting in a penalty for South Africa, which they successfully converted.

Both teams had opportunities during extra time, but Nigeria ultimately clinched the victory 4-3 in penalties, with goalkeeper Stanley Nwabili making two crucial saves. Nigeria’s impressive performance throughout the AFCON tournament has propelled them to the final as they aim to add another trophy to their collection.
