South Africa vs Nigeria − Match preview
Neither South Africa or Nigeria topped their respective groups. In fact, South Africa scraped through to the knockout rounds as one of the competition’s four best third-placed countries.
However, Bafana Bafana produced the shock of the tournament to reach the quarter-finals, dumping AFCON 2019 hosts Egypt out at the Round of 16 stage. That should give them huge belief against a Nigeria side that knocked out reigning champions Cameroon at the weekend.
The Super Eagles came out 3-2 winners after a brace from former Watford striker Odion Ighalo and an Alex Iwobi goal. That came after Nigeria finished second in their group, which was topped by AFCON 2019 surprise package Madagascar.
