Nigerian stand-up comedian and actor, Okey Bakassi has called Super Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi 'tokunbo' after Algeria 2-1 victory on Sunday in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals encounter at Cairo Stadium.

The Desert Foxes took the lead in the first half, thanks to William Troost-Ekong’s own goal but Genort Rohr side three-time levelled up in the second half via penalty spot from former Premier League striker Odion Ighalo.

However, Ahmed Musa, Kelechi Iheanaco and Wilfred Ndidi ex-Leicester City teammate Riyad Mahrez scored the winner for Algeria in the extra time after spanking a free-kick past South Africa base goalkeeper Akpeyi to send his side into final for the first time in 29 years.
