Nigeria secured a 2-1 victory over South Africa in the Afcon 2019 quarter-final match in Egypt on Wednesday night.

Goals from Chikwueze and Troost-Ekong fired Super Eagles into the semi-finals of the tournament, setting them up against either Ivory Coast or Algeria.

Long before the first ball was kicked, fans of Nigeria and South Africa were already poking fun at each on social media.

Nigeria dispatched old foes Cameroon while South Africa knocked-out hosts Egypt, to set up the last eight encounter.

Incidentally, both sides were drawn in the same qualifying group.

When it comes to clashes at Afcon finals, it’s the Super Eagles who have the upper hand. They have beaten South Africa twice – in 2000 and 2004.
