Super Eagles forward Samuel Chukwueze makes history after becoming the youngest to score at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.The 20-year-old Villarreal youngster opened the scoring for Nigeria in their quarter-finals clash against South Africa at the Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday night after bundled past the helpless Ronwen Williams to scored before the half-hour mark with Arsenal star Alex Iwob provides the assist.However, Bafana Bafana levels up through Bongani Zungu in the 71 minutes of the encounter before Udinese centre-back William Troost-Ekong threw himself into a Moses Simon's corner kick and found the back of the net one minutes from time.
Super Eagles have now joined Senegal in the semifinals and will play the winner of Algeria vs Ivory Coast at the last four stages.
