Let The Games Begin – South Africa vs Nigeria

Bafana Bafana face Nigeria at FNB Stadium in a crucial fixture in the Afcon 2019 qualifiers.

Whilst Nigeria only reach their destination in South Africa this Friday morning, the hosts have had a good week of training in scorching Gauteng weather and after the final training session on Friday, the boys looked tense with excitement and enthusiasm as from a rush of adrenaline for one of their biggest clash.

Stuart Baxter told the media at media briefing that he is ready for this monumental clash but added it will be a great and tough game all-round.

“It is going to be a tough game, Nigeria are a good team.  They will create problems on many levels but if we stretch ourselves and play to the best of our ability, we will give them problems,” Stuart Baxter told reporters.

He also stated that “The whole of South Africa is undergoing economic stress and people are called to tighten their belts. Money has not been an issue with us; we are here for the three points and make fans happy.”

He once again made a last minute call for fans to go and buy tickets saying the team needs to feel at home and not to be outnumbered by the visitors.
