Date, time, and location of Nigeria vs. Angola and other AFCON quarterfinal matches are listed in the FULL LIST.


As of yesterday, eight teams had secured their spots in the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinals.

After Namibia was crushed on Saturday night by the Parancas Negras (Black Sable Antelopes), Angola became the first team to qualify.

After defeating the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, the attacking-oriented squad will now take on the Super Eagles of Nigeria, who are regarded as one of the competition’s favourites, according to The PUNCH.

The tournament’s biggest surprise was the Round 16 match between the hosts, Côte d’Ivoire, and Senegal, the reigning champions. Frank Kessie’s penalty kept the hosts in the game and forced penalty shootouts in the Elephant’s favour, propelling the hosts to the final eight.

Meanwhile, Ryan Mendes’ late penalty completed the victory for Cape Verde, sending them through to the quarter-finals for the second time in their history.

“We are carving our path; we know there are many bigger teams than us, but we are trying to focus on our game to have the opportunity to face these African powerhouses,” Cape Verde manager Bubista said, expressing his delight with his team’s performance.

“We want to build a stronger squad as our goal.”

Another setback in this tournament came from Guinea’s thrilling victory in the eighth minute of injury time on Sunday, as they defeated Equatorial Guinea’s 10-man team 1-0.

When French Ligue 1 team Le Havre’s Bayo scored with just seconds remaining in the match, the last-16 match at the Ebimpe Olympic Stadium in Abidjan was about to go into overtime, setting off wild scenes of celebration among the Guinea team and their sizable fan base.

It was a historic moment for the Syli National, who had never previously won a Cup of Nations knockout tie — they were runners-up in 1976, in an era when the final four played a round-robin format to decide the winner of the trophy.

The Pharaohs of Egypt were also victims of one of the upsets of this tournament as DR Congo sent them back home after a penalty shootout. And Bafana Bafana of South Africa shocked 10-man Morocco to reach the last eight.
