It is now a stale news that my country defeated South Africa in the AFCON, 2019 competition. Prior to this game South Africa eliminated the prestigious host of the competition in the round of 16 but were unlucky and sent home by the super eagles of Nigeria in the quarter finals.
Both team gave it a fight from start to finish but the brilliance of chukwueze and the resilient spirit of William Troost-Ekong were too strong for the tenacious and vibrant bafana bafana boys of South Africa.
Now the competition is on the semi-final phase, with Nigeria, Algeria, Tunisia and Senegal still on in the game and aiming for the cup glory. My country has been paired with Algeria to battle it out for a place in the finals, while Senegal and Tunisia will wrestle it out for a spot in the finals.
Who will progress? Who will go home knocked out? Only the game on the pitch will tell!!!
