Angola, who were subpar for large stretches of the match, were embarrassed by the 1-0 scoreline, and Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen had his header disallowed for offside in the 75th minute by the video assistance referee.
Four minutes before halftime in Abidjan, the former England Under-21 winger emphatically converted a cut-back from Moses Simon.
Just before the hour mark, Zine had Angola’s greatest opportunity when he rolled the ball against the base of the post after being clean through on goal.
Next Wednesday, Nigeria will play the victor of Cape Verde vs. South Africa, Saturday’s quarterfinal, in the final four.
Angola created the opening opportunity of the match when Stanley Nwabali, the goalkeeper for the Super Eagles, turned Mabululu’s attempt away after Gilberto flicked on a corner.
Their opponents were well contained by this strategy up until shortly before halftime, when Simon masterminded Lookman’s goal.
