Super Falcons goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie has saluted the Golden Eaglets after they edged South Africa 3-2 to reach the quarter-finals of the 2023 U-17 AFCON in Algeria.
The Eaglets went into the game on the back of a defeat to Morocco.
But it was not the best of starts for Nduka Ugbade’s side, as they went behind just five minutes into the game as Vicky Mkhawana opened the scoring for South Africa.
Charles Agada equalised for Nigeria on 34 minutes but Siyabonga Mabena made it 2-1 for the Amajimbos just before halftime.
