Just like it was at the case at the FIFA World Cup in Russia last year, Kaizer Chiefs and Nigerian international goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi will be the only Premier Soccer League player at the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) semi-finals on Sunday.

Nigeria take on Algeria in the second semi-final at the Cairo International stadium at 21:00, Senegal and Tunisia will contest the first semi-final at 30 June stadium also in Cairo at 18:00.

There’s been a lot of criticism targeted to Akpeyi coming to this tournament.
