The Super Eagles of Nigeria have landed in South Africa ahead of their 2019 Nations Cup qualifier against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa.
The Eagles go into the game top of the group but are closely followed by South Africa with only a point separating both teams
The match is finely poised to serve the fans with the best of entertainment as it is a winner-takes-all. Three points would see the Super Eagles qualify as the undisputed leader of the group while a point is also enough to secure ticket to their AFCON tournament since 2013.

A lose for South Africa will see them under immense pressure especially if Libya wins their game against Seychelles while a point is neither too good or too bad. A win would however see them displace Nigeria from first position.
The reverse fixture, the first game of the group, was a 2-0 win by South Africa over Nigeria in Uyo; a game many point to as the point/foundation that birthed the current revolutionized and new-look Eagles.
Nigeria’s coach, Gernot Rohr and Super Eagles’ players have been talking about taking revenge for that game but South Africa would be looking to impress too.
