Emerging report reaching Post Nigeria, revealed that the Uyo Township Stadium is tension soaked, as the Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to clash with Bafana Bafana of South Africa, by 5 pm today, for the Africa Cup qualifying match.
Recall, that South Africa is looking for a win in this competitive match over Nigeria. There have been six wins for the Super Eagles and three draws, since 1992.
The Super Eagles are aiming to qualify for the Nations Cup finals for the first time, since winning the title in 2013.
“We do not want to forget that South Africa partly contributed to us not going to the 2015 Cup of Nations”, said Nigeria’s stand-in Captain, Ogenyi Onazi.
“This time, we must restore our pride and make sure we get the three points off them on Saturday.
“Nigerians do not forgive losers easily, and it is our responsibility to make the country proud whenever we are in action.”
Defender Thulani Hlatshwayo, who plays South African champions Wits, was named Bafana Bafana Captain this week, by new Coach Stuart Baxter.
