Super Eagles of Nigeria will face Bafana Bafana of South Africa in Africa Nations Cup qualifier in Uyo on Saturday. The team managed by Gernot Rohr hasn’t been to the continent’s football showpiece since the triumph in 2013.
A review of the list of invited players shows new boy and Arsenal bound Henry Onyekwuru as the latest invitee. Victor Osimhen was also recalled to the side that is expected to stop the tide of failures in qualifying for the Nations Cup.
The Super Eagles are very familiar with the Bafana Bafana. The last competitive encounter was the stalemate that denied the Super Eagles the opportunity of featuring at the 2015 Nations Cup.
In twelve matches versus the Bafana Bafana, Super Eagles has only lost once. And that was a friendly match in 2004.
