Baxter Reveals Bafana Bafana's Plan to Stop Eagles

Nigeria return to Africa Cup of Nations

"I think they will be with us at the next AFCON in Cameroon".

Musa, in a statement signed by Demola Olajire, Head of Communication of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), said that the Super Eagles are not thinking of simply gaining a point from the encounter.

"But I think that if South Africa played as they did today, with Percy Tau who is a wonderful player they are going to beat them and even a draw will be enough. But we are here for the three points".

Both the Super Eagles and the Bafana Bafana were missing at the last edition of the AFCON with Nigeria also failing to make it to the 2015 edition to defend the title they won two years earlier under the tutelage of now Late Stephen Keshi.

The final qualifying round is set to take place in March of 2019.

"Coach Gernot Rohr has revived the team since assuming responsibilities, and the high level of commitment and discipline on the part of the players made the job easy for him", he said.


"It's more than a year since we played against South Africa and lost in Uyo".

Defender Shehu Abdulahi, goalkeeper Francis Uzoho and striker Odion Ighalo are sidelined by injury, while Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is suspended.

Rohr switched to a 3-5-2 formation for the game, which he says worked for the heat and the altitude of Johannesburg by making them more compact.

He confessed: "We are anxious by the low numbers".

"The young players groomed by the coach to achieve the qualification have proven the vitality in youths and attested to the technical input impacted in the team by Rohr". We must look at the personnel with us now and see the situation as opportunity for them to step up and prove what they can do.
