Game Preview


Nigeria and Angola will square off at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny stadium in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on February 2 for a knockout round match in the Africa Cup of Nations.


Before Jose Peseiro’s squad performed in their Cup of Nations opener two weeks ago, there were modest expectations. However, after defeating Cameroon 2-0 in the most recent round, the 3-time champions are starting to dream of a 4th crown. Ademola Lookman scored twice during the match, but Victor Osimhen’s tenacity was just as valuable even though he didn’t add to the 1 goal he scored versus Equatorial Guinea at AFCON 2023. Peseiro’s team has benefited from a solid defense that has caused them to give up little opportunities to score; their last decisive opportunity came in their 1-0 victory over Cote d’Ivoire. Their strong defense has served as the cornerstone of their attempt for a continental crown. However, they have been shaken by an injury to Stanley Nwabali, their goalie, with Francis Uzoho, who has been heavily criticized, presumably slated to take over.



Nigeria face Angola in a rematch of the competition, and the country in southern Africa is not considered to be an easy opponent for the top-seeded team still playing. After that 1-1 tie with the Fennes, Pedro Goncalves’ team unexpectedly won Group B, which included Algeria, the 2019 champions, with 7 points. Since then, they have defeated brave Mauritania (3-2), Burkina Faso (2-0), and Namibia (3-0). With the help of Gelson Dala and Mabululu, who together have scored 7 of the 9 goals scored by the Palancas Negras, the free-scoring team’s AFCON 2023 campaign continues with their recent victory. That makes up 77.8% of Angola’s scores at the regional championship, and their impact would surely be crucial if they were to surprise Peseiro’s team. Angola won’t have an easy game in this matchup.
