Slow ticket sales for Bafana Bafana, Nigeria showdown

Nigeria and South Africa fans

Nigeria captain Ahmed Musa had some bold words ahead of their all-important Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Bafana Bafana this afternoon.

"On the behalf of the government and people of Ebonyi, I congratulate the Super Eagles over this qualification and urge Nigerians to continue praying for the team to excel at the competition".

For both sides, securing maximum points will guarantee a berth in next year's edition of the Nations Cup in Cameroon.

South Africa are occupying second position on the standings with 8 points.

In a video below eNCA's Tim Modise explores whether the team is worthy to rally behind.

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

The contingent consists of 23 players, team officials led by Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr, members of the NFF Executive Committee, some members of NFF Management and NFF Staff and a number of media representatives.

"If it is only a draw, it will be enough because we will surely qualify with one point".

Recall that the first choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, alongside Abdullahi Shehu and Odion Ighalo are not in South Africa as a result of injuries, while Wilfred Ndidi is suspended after cards against Seychelles and Libya. I don't think they were expecting a South African team to defend with such discipline at set-pieces. But we can not continue to talk about that.

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. We also had Tokelo Rantie up front foraging and (Lebo) Manyama and we had our fullbacks going forward ... we put the fear of God into them. The reward I get is if I see the faces of the people out there are happy, and I see the players proud of themselves.
