CHAN 2018: Super Eagles To Face Angola In Quarter Final
Angola have emerged as the quarter final opponents for the home-based Super Eagles at the ongoing African Nations Championships taking place in Morocco.
The Eagles will be battling it out on Sunday in Tangier for a place in the semi-finals of this year’s CHAN tournament.
Angola finished runners-up in Group D with five points after they drew 0-0 with group leaders Congo in Agadir with the CHAN Eagles getting a chance to spy on their next opponents.
The Palancas Negras knew a draw against already qualified Congo would be enough to get the remaining quarter final place, and they did just that.
On their part Burkina Faso and already-eliminated Cameroon drew 1-1 in the other Group D tie, thus finishing with two and one point respectively.
Sunday’s quarterfinal between Nigeria and Angola will kick off by 5.30 p.m. Nigerian time inside the Stade Ibn Batouta in Tangier.
