Though the Super Eagles of Nigeria and others have qualified for the quarter finals, the quarter finalists were not the best, See Quarter Finalists Full Fixtures.
The super Eagles were the first to qualify after beating Guinea with a lone goal to earned 6 points in the group but went on to loose to Madagascar 2 zeros.
In what seems to be an irony, the best were dropped at the knockout stage.
This online media recall that, Morocco had 9 points, Egypt also had 9 points at group stage but were all knocked out.
Also, South Africa and Benin Republic had 3 points respectively but were qualified and now in quarter finals.
What an irony in the game of football Quarter finalists were not the best!!!
Nigeria’s super eagles will take on South Africa in the Quarterfinal of the ongoing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Remember, Nigeria defeated Cameroon to qualify while South Africans were able to knocked out the Pharoahs of Egypt.
Senegal will take on West African side Benin in the Afcon quarter final.
