Nigeria defeated South Africa 4–2 on penalties (1–1 in regular and extra time) at the Al Salam Stadium in Boaké in the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast to reach the final.
Nigeria owes its qualification to the eighth final in its history to its South African and Chippa United goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabili, who saved two penalty kicks. The Premier Eagles will meet hosts Ivory Coast or Democratic Republic of Congo in the final next Sunday at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan, with the latter meeting at the final stadium.
