The Super Eagles, meanwhile, have now earned themselves around R920 000 already, as per Nigerian journalist Osasu Obayiuwana, who published the Nigerian bonus structure ahead of the tournament.
Although Nigeria have largely dominated when the two nations clash they will go into this match with confidence after knocking-out the host nation.
A few hours after Nigeria triumphed last Saturday, South Africa stunned hosts and pre-tournament favourites Egypt 1-0 in Cairo with Thembinkosi Lorch snatching a late victor. Have your say in the comments section below. "I'm not judging him on his stats here in South Africa, but what he's doing for the national team".
In one of the most remarkable stories in the competition's history, Madagascar have defied the odds to reach the quarter-finals, with Amada's opening goal in the last game a spectacular 25-yard strike that tailed away from the keeper and flew in off the post. "South Africa is a very good team, they had a very good game against Egypt but it's too hard to do this two times in a row", Rohr said after the game.
Gernot Rohr will be looking at replicating the success of the late Stephen Keshi who last won the AFCON with Nigeria in 2013.

And when he did that, I kind of told myself ... it would be pretty special to roll in an eagle and finish this deal off on 18. After following two birdies with a bogey at the ninth, Wolff picked up shots at 10, 14 and 15 before his spectacular finish.
South Africa did not have a good start to the campaign, losing to the Ivory Coast and Morocco by a lone goal each. He is also one of the top scorers in this AFCON with three goals.

"One of the important things for us is to remain very, very humble", he said.
But Troost-Ekong bundled home in the 89th-minute minute after Williams made a hash of a corner to dash South Africa's hopes of progressing and left Nigeria still chasing their dream of a fourth AFCON title.
But Bongani Zungu's looping header brought South Africa level on 70 minutes, the goal awarded with the aid of VAR - introduced for the first time at the tournament from the quarter-final stage onwards - after it was initially ruled out for offside.
Akpeyi is likely to be in goal when the Super Eagles take on Bafana Bafana in the quarterfinals at Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday night (21h00). So, we are aware of his (Lorch) threat, he is a player that I like.
