Nigeria v South Africa

Nigeria v South Africa”

South Africa caused a major upset when knocking hosts Egypt out of the Africa Cup of Nations and can now push Nigeria all the way in the quarter-finals.

Inside the opening minutes, Bafana struggled to get in to rhythm though they managed to get a shot in from the far side through Thembinkosi Lorch after some good work by Percy Tau in the build-up.

"Dare I say it crowds in South Africa for some global matches are quite sparse", said Baxter. "No matter what Super Eagle will be Super Eagle and no matter the toughness South Africa give us, they will be 2-1 down", said a fan.

While there is no doubting the incredible spree SA have enjoyed up till now, we see Nigeria being an opponent just too much for them.

"We have to think about that one, but we should be under no illusions that Nigeria are one of the best teams on the continent, they have been stable under Gernot Rohr so it will be a massive and hard game for us".

However, in a rebuttal Bafana Head Coach Stuart Baxter returned the compliment with a slight dig, " I don't think he's fooling anybody", he said in his presser.

The pair have met on 14 official occasions in the past, with Bafana winning two and Nigeria winning seven. One win (over Egypt on Saturday) doesn't make us favourites.

"Our target is to win the game and we will push hard to beat them". Nigeria or South Africa?

The woes nearly worsened for Bafana in the last three minutes to halftime when Chukwueze looked for his brace from the near side, but Dean Furman's block saved the day. The players were inspired by the crowd the other evening, but I hope they don't need that sort of crowd to find that inspiration. "I'm a striker, I want to score goals, but if they don't come and we win the game I will be more satisfied".

The Super Eagles are expected to dominate possession early on, so 3/1 for Ighalo to strike first again is worth a saver from the Nigeria vs South Africa odds.

We recommend interesting sports viewing and streaming opportunities. I'm a professional and people are bound to criticise me. "I think everybody here has been criticised one way or another but you don't let that get to you", said Ighalo.

However, Cisse warned Senegal would pay the price for looking any further than Wednesday's quarter-final with Benin in Cairo.
