The 20-year-old helped Nigeria's Super Eagles defeat South Africa's Bafana Bafana 2-1 in yesterday's quarter-final game.
The anticipation preceding yesterday's game was certainly palpable. South Africans hoped that their national team, Bafana Bafana, who (surprisingly) defeated Egypt 1-0 in the 16th round of the tournament, would pull out another win from their bag of (many) surprises against Nigeria's Super Eagles.
In fact, South Africans even started the hashtag #IfBafanaBeatsNigeriaIWill where they talked about the range of hilarious things they'd do if their boys defeated Nigeria. However, it was not meant to be and last night saw South Africa, which has never defeated Nigeria at the AFCON, exit the tournament and Nigeria advance to the semi-finals.
