Super Eagles celebrate AFCON 2019 qualification in dressing room

Baxter said Mothiba is champing at the bit to take on the Super Eagles.

"He equally commends the coaching crew, the Nigeria Football Federation and the Supporters Club, especially Nigerians residing in South Africa, who turned out in great numbers to cheer the players, for a job well-done, and assures them of the unflinching support of the Federal Government going forward". We won in Seychelles and against Libya in Tunisia and we are here to win as well.

I think i am growing now and getting more matured and the expectations are high and I need to keep up my game to ensure I remain relevant as far football is concerned.

"'We had three very good central defenders, we believe it was the best organisation for today".

Libya put eight goals past the Seychelles at the Stad Linité in Saturday's other Group E encounter to stay in the hunt for a place at the 2019 continental showpiece.


Kick-off time for the Super Eagles match in South Africa is 3pm Nigerian time, which is 2pm local time.

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.

Both teams tied 1-1 in a friendly in Nelspruit in March 2015 before the Bafana shocked the Eagles in Uyo 2-0 on Matchday 1 of the current qualifying series.

The Super Eagles will have a feel of the turf of the FNB Stadium as from 3pm on Friday. Those guys are so big - we can not out-muscle them.

"This will be the most hard match for this young team", Rohr admitted. 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.
