Golden Eaglets of Nigeria have beaten Angola 1-0 to reach the semi-final of the ongoing U-17 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania  Wednesday afternoon.

It was the second win for Manu Garba’s side at the tournament after beating Tanzania 5-4 in their first Group A game.

The five-time winners of the competition have also picked a ticket for the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil later this year.

Olakunle Olusegun scored from the penalty spot in the 20th minute after an Angolan defender handled the ball in the penalty box.

The Golden Eaglets had so many chances in the first half with five attempts on goal out of the seven shots fired.

Nigeria will face Uganda in their final group game on Friday.
