Nigeria will be gunning for a place in the Africa Cup of Nations 2023 final when they face South Africa in the semi-finals on February 7.

The Super Eagles are now favorites to win their first AFCON title since 2013 when they face either Ivory Coast or DR Congo in the final.

Nigeria have conceded just one goal so far in the tournament, winning the knockout stages over Cameroon and Angola as South Africa needed to win a penalty shoot-out over Cape Verde in the previous round.

Team news

Nigeria head coach Jose Peseiro could stick with an unchanged starting line-up from the 1-0 quarter-final win over Angola, with Atalanta winger Ademola Lookman scoring all three goals so far in the knockout stage.

South Africa coach Hugo Broos has not announced any fresh injury news ahead of this game, with Al Ahly striker Percy Tau a key name in attack.
