Omeruo Celebrates Home Eagles’ CHAN 2018 Q/Final Win Over Angola

Nigeria international, Kenneth Omeruo, has sent congratulatory message to the home-based Super Eagles who edged Angola 2-1 after extra-time in the quarter-finals of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Tangier, Morocco, on Sunday, Completesportsnigeria reports.

The home Eagles had to rely on a late goal by Anthony Okpotu in the 91st minute to drag the game into extra-time after Vladimir Va shot Angola into the lead on 55 minutes.

And in the 19th minute of second half extra-time, Okechukwu Gabriel scored the winner to send Nigeria into the semi-final.

Reacting to the win, Omeruo, who is on loan at Turkish top flight club Kasimpasa from Chelsea, hailed the coach Salisu Yusuf-led side for reaching the last four.

“Congrats my people.. through to the semi-finals.. big ups Nigeria Super Eagles,” Omeruo wrote on his Instagram page.

The home Eagles will now face Sudan in the semi-final on Wednesday, January 31, in Marrakech.
