A place in the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations will be up for grabs when Nigeria takes on Angola at the Felix Houphouët-Boigny Stadium in Abidjan. Nigeria defeated Cameroon 2-0 in the Round of 16 and their performance in general in this competition have been very well. With just one defeat in their last ten games, they head into this contest as the favourites but it is more about which side hold the composure in big games such as these. Angola brushed aside Namibia in their Round of 16 encounter, which was a big statement from the side. Having won twice in the group stage as well, the morale of the squad is high.

Nigerian goalkeeper Stanley Nwabili will undergo late fitness tests following his injury in the late stages against Cameroon. Victor Osimhen leads the attack for the team with Ademola Lookman and Moses Simon on the wings. Alex Iwobi is utilized in midfield but his main role will be to drive the team forward with his trademark runs. Frank Onyeka will sit back and shield the backline as the holding midfielder.

Angola goalkeeper Neblu received his marching orders against Namibia and will be suspended for the tie. Gelson Dala with four goals and an assist, has been one of the most influential players of the tournament.
