Bafana Bafana arrive in Nigeria — EXTRA TIME

Bafana Bafana arrive in Nigeria — EXTRA TIME

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has cautioned his players against being overly confident ahead of their African Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa, and says they will have to be tough to beat Bafana Bafana on 10 June.

"I believe it is good to score early but at the same time, they can not afford to be caught napping at the back. Some of the younger players that have worked hard in this camp, will get a run against Zambia because they deserve and we want to see them", said Baxter.

In his comment, midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo, said that the team was ready to face Bafana Bafana and win squarely.

"If we manage to frustrate them, the crowd would become restless and that would be a big starting point".

The South African national team arrived Nigeria on Wednesday for the game on Saturday.

NAN reports that Ahmed Musa, Kenneth Omeruo and Elderson Echiejile, who missed the first training session on Tuesday, were present in the Wednesday's.
