South Africa’s Bafana Bafana took on Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Saturday in an AFCON qualifier match which both teams had to win to secure progression to next stage of the qualifiers. The match ended in a stalemate (1-1) leaving both teams to share the points.
The game between Bafana and the Super Eagles was set on the backdrop of Cash incentives for the Nigerians for each goal they scored, while Bafana had lack lust home support even though they had previously beaten the Super Eagles back in June (2-0).
Saturdays Draw sees Nigerians move to the first position in the group, only the winners of the group are able to move on to the next stage of the AFCON Qualifiers. Which means Bafana will have to win their next game against Libya and hope Nigeria lose against the Seychelles to qualify.
