Watch Nigeria vs South Africa – The Super Eagles of Nigeria will, on the 17th of November, trade tackles with South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, in a crunch Afcon qualifier to decide who would emerge Group E winner, and automatically qualify for the tournament proper in 2019.
The two countries stand a realistic chance to qualify, at the expense of the other, but Stuart Baxter’s men must avoid defeat if they want to live to fight another.
Although the Super Eagles would be motivated to go all out for the three points on offer, having already lost at home to Saturday’s opponent, a draw would be an okay result for them too. Nigeria play Seychelles, and the Itumeleng Khune captained bafana bafana side would face a tougher Libyan side, who would be playing for pride, on the final weekend of qualifiers.
Coach Gernot Rohr, and his technical crew, have since listed a 23 man squad to persecute the match, with a couple of the invitees getting their maiden call ups. And in like manner, Staurt Baxter has also included Percy Tau in his 23 man squad, which is most made up of home based players.
The match would make for an excellent watch, as one of the highest scoring team squares up against the best defence in AFCON qualifiers.
The Nigerians have scored 10 goals in 4 matches, and the bafana bafana are yet to concede in the same number of matches.
