Ademola Lookman’s dad gives heart-warming interview after his son fires Nigeria into AFCON semis.

Ademola Lookman’s dad was delighted after his son’s goal against Angola saw Nigeria progress to the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigeria prevailed with a 1-0 win, with Atalanta’s Lookman finding the net in the 41st minute.

Following their victory, Nigeria will face either Cape Verde or South Africa in the last four.

Lookman’s father was interviewed after the game and said: ‘I’m happy, I’m overwhelmed, I am so happy. I’m pleased for Nigeria winning this game.’

However, it wasn’t all good news for Nigeria, with Victor Osimhen having to be taken off on a stretcher after suffering an injury.
