Nigeria beat South Africa in a thrilling U17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) match to progress to the quarterfinals.

South Africa had taken an early lead through Vicky Mkhawana, but Nigeria fought back to equalize through Charles Agada's header.

Abdullahi then secured the win for Nigeria with a well-placed shot, while South Africa's hopes of qualifying now depend on the results of Group C.
