Team News

Nigeria- Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr is expected to start the same XI that beat Cameroon 3-2 in the thrilling last-16 contest in Alexandria on Saturday.

Right-back Chidozie Awaziem is a booking away from suspension.

South Africa- Stuart Baxter is not expected to make any changes to the team that shocked Egypt 1-0 in the round of 16.

That means Thembinkosi Lorch, who scored the goal against Egypt, will start despite the return of Themba Zwane from suspension.

Bogani Zungu, Sfiso Hlanti and Thulani Hlatshwayo must avoid a yellow card to be available for the semi-finals if South Africa progress.
