Moses Simon, a key player in Nigeria's 2024 Africa Cup of Nations, scored his third goal and received the Man of the Match title.

Nigeria advanced to the semifinals with a 1-0 victory over Angola, securing their 15th semi-final in 19 appearances.

 The victory was a significant achievement for Nigeria, who had previously lost to Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau, and Cameroon.

The victory also served as a commemoration for the deceased champion, Samuel Okwaraji, who passed away during a 1990 World Cup qualifying match.

 Lookman, an Atalanta forward and former England Under-21 international, scored both goals in Nigeria's triumph over Cameroon in the last 16 and secured their third 1-0 victory of the tournament.

 Nigeria's defensive strategy, prioritizing preventing goals, has maintained a streak of four consecutive clean sheets for Nigeria.

Nigeria will progress to the semi-finals next Wednesday, where they will face either Cape Verde or South Africa.
