AFCON 2019 - Nigeria 1-1 South Africa

South Africa's forward Percy Tau celebrates his goal with teammates Lebo Mothiba and Themba Zwane during the 2019 AFCON Group E qualifier football match between Libya and South Africa at Stade Taieb Mhiri in the Tunisian city of Sfax on March

Stuart Baxter's charges then shocked the football world with a vastly improved performance against hosts Egypt.

"We know the South Africans have been saying a lot of things on the internet, but we have told ourselves that we must not lose to them".

South Africa's players have so far earned themselves R520 000 for their exploits at the tournament in Egypt after Safa president Danny Jordaan confirmed the agreed bonus structure in Cairo last week. It was the reason we were very close to beating them at their home too in the return leg before the game ended in a 1-1 draw. The latter seem the favourites in this quarter-final battle, after defeating Senegal 1-0 in the group stage, before a tub-thumping 3-0 win over Tanzania at the same level, followed by another 3-0 triumph over Guinea in the second round. "I don't think he (Rohr) is fooling anybody", the South Africa coach said at a press conference.

South Africa were moments away from extra-time when a goalkeeping error from Ronwen Williams gifted Nigeria a late victor in Cairo. The team's goal difference is neutral after winning twice by the same scoreline, while Nigeria has displayed more consistency.

South Africa did not have a good start to the campaign, losing to the Ivory Coast and Morocco by a lone goal each. They managed to keep a clean sheet each of their opening four qualifying matches.

If more than 20 people qualify, the Democratic National Committee will hold a tiebreaker to determine who gets on stage. Beto O'Rourke has pushed it as a central issue, neither has broken into the top tier of candidates so far.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has backed Bafana Bafana to go all the way in the 2019 African Cup of Nations (Afcon), but his opposite number is not buying into those mind games.

On the chances of finishing as the tournament's top scorer, the former Watford star said, "I put the team ahead in everything I do".

Both nations will be in confident mood heading into the game after overcoming tricky oppositions in the form of defending champions Cameroon and hosts Egypt in the round of 16. Who do you think will progress?

Senegal must wait until Thursday to find out who they will face in their first Afcon semi-final since 2006, with Tunisia and surprise packages Madagascar meeting in Cairo.

Idrissa Gueye scores the victor for Senegal against Benin.
