VIDEO: William Troost-Ekong dragged South African player, Mihlali Mayambela jersey as he took yellow card with his full chest during AFCON semi final 2024

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that William Troost-Ekong dragged South African player, Mihlali Mayambela jersey as he took yellow card with his full chest during AFCON semi final 2024.

Every time it feels like the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations has finally emptied the drama tank, there's been something left to thrill the fans.

On the brink of elimination, Nigeria put themselves instead on the cusp of glory as the Super Eagles nudged past South Africa into the AFCON final, advancing through the semifinals on a penalty shootout after a 1-1 regulation draw.

After 85 minutes of a hard-fought, back-and-forth affair where Nigeria led 1-0 despite chances on both ends, it appeared the Super Eagles had put the match away as Victor Osimhen's goal put them 2-0 up with just a few minutes remaining. Yet VAR turned the match on its head, not only disallowing Osimhen's goal, but pulling play back for a foul in the Nigeria penalty area that awarded South Africa a chance to equalize from the spot.

Since making it to the AFCON final on home soil in 2000, Nigeria’s Super Eagles have only made it that far once, in 2013, when they went all the way to win the tournament.

Having long adopted the slogan ‘Let’s do it again’, the Super Eagles are eager to win their fourth AFCON title, in Cote d’Ivoire.

But first, Jose Peseiro’s men have to navigate past South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in the semi-final to inch closer to their set target.
