S Africa have engaged familiar English coach to guide its future, and he is warning
Nigeria to beware the new Bafana-Bafana.

Not quite, as S Affrica has improved in the last couple of years and given the SE some headache.
Only the uninformed will dismiss Bafana Bafana, as there is parity among teams especially on the
African continent. And that is the where true meaning of the word 'COMPETITIVE' gets relevant.

Sounds pretty reasonable.

South Africa has been competitive against Nigeria lately.
But then again, it has largely happened at a period Nigeria was dire (even losing to Sudan)

Going by the law of averages, SAfrica shall probably beat Nigeria at some point...
Still, you have to wonder: if SAfrica couldn't beat Nigeria during Nigeria's under-par period, what are the odds anytime soon..?

The Bafana Bafana are probably facing the SE at the worst possible time. Rohr is systematically putting a formidable team together, with too many players having a lot to prove, jockeying for positions... I am sensing the thorough smack down in this encounter.. I will be surprised if they leave Uyo with anything less that 4-1.

any body can beat anybody someday; we beat Argentina after all, france, brazil, spain,. South Africa could beat us but does that mean they would ever become Nigeria - I don't think so
