Super Eagles of Nigeria booked their spot in the semi-final of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON2023) which is being hosted in Ivory Coast.

Atalanta’s forward player, Ademola Lookman is the name on the lips of every Nigerian since the beginning of the knock-out stages. He scored two goals in the round of 16 against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon and the only goal against the Antelopes of Angola in the quarter-finals.

Lookman’s father could not hide his excitement after the final whistle went in the game against Angola.

“I am happy, I am overwhelmed, I am so happy. I’m pleased for Nigeria winning this game.”

Nigeria will face either South Africa or Cape Verde in the semi-final on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, as they look to win the trophy for the fourth time.
