We will beat SA tomorrow, but it will be a close game. They pass the ball well and are well coached, however I think we will win because our forwards are more clinical in front of goal. SA will probably end up having more possession, but will still lose.


SA were firing long range missiles at every opportunity against Egypt. They know Akpeyi is the weak link in the side, Expect the same tomorrow. If he keeps a clean sheet, it will be bragging rights all the way back to SA for him. He needs to have a blinder tomorrow, both for his personal confidence and to win the fans back over.

Story. Make una get over that yeye narrative mehn. How many yeye goals Akpeyi don concede. Una no dey tired? Smdh


Ain't saying he hasn't earned his spot but his performances still remain suspect. Anyway, we are all rooting for him tomorrow and hope he ends up with a MOTM performance

The write up clearly states "we are underdogs". If he had said we are better than Nigeria then yes you gys would be right be talking the way you are now

Unless you wanted him to say we are just going to turn up as a formality and let Nigeria beat us silly :twisted: :roll:

2 years after this match, South Africa won AFCON. Unfortunately, Abacha did not let us go, otherwise the result would have been the same.

I know, Trezequet could have scored three. The last attempt Mo salah gave a delicious pass and nada

Good I’m happy with the way things are, if South Africa scored too early Egypt would have gone through as the ref would have buckled under pressure.

Afcon 2019: Nigeria can't match Bafana Bafana's pace and skill - Mohlala


Former South Africa defender Jethro Mohlala has warned the supporters not to put Bafana Bafana under pressure following their win over Egypt at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals.
Coach Stuart Baxter's men are through to the quarter-finals of the continental tournament and many have backed the team to go all the way and become champions for the second time.
“Look, I think many South Africans never gave the boys a chance based on how the results in the group stages came out. I believe that also helped the players to relax because they were underdogs going into that clash,” Mohlala told Goal.

Having said that, they knew their qualities and they just had to play their normal game and show their quality and they did everything well,” he added.
“They are aware that the fans back home were not happy and they had to step up. They silenced everyone and that will restore their confidence. That is a massive victory for the team without a doubt. I never gave them a chance they proved us wrong, that was pure class and I just think they can beat whoever they face going forward.
Speaking about team selection as goalscorer Thembinkosi Lorch replaced Themba Zwane, Mohlala expressed disappointment where fans tend to individualise players based on their clubs.
“Yeah, they played very well, the change was good and it worked. Credit must go to the coach and his technical team. I am not happy though when we mention players based on their clubs, this is a national team,” he urged.
“We just need to support them as a national team. Lorch did very well for us and he clicked with Percy Tau and it was good that we scored at that time in the game. Lorch is a great player, I hope he learns day by day and we wish them all the best going forward."
Moreover, the former Mamelodi Sundowns player stated that facing Nigeria in a quarter-final clash on Wednesday is better than meeting a fellow Southern African side.
“I think that’s going to be a good game against Nigeria and the boys will need to focus. It’s better we are not facing another Southern African side,” continued the legend.

“I think the North and West Africans are struggling to play against us. They cannot match our pace and skill. I would like to see a continuity from the boys and ensure we upset Nigeria.
“I think we also need to credit the coach for analyzing the game very well. I believe that it’s not about playing badly in the group stages, but we failed to clear the lines at the back and lapses of concentration let us down – our mistakes killed us,” he reflected.

"Other than that, we still have a good team and we can go all the way to challenge for the trophy. It’s a knockout stage and we can beat any team now but let’s not put the boys under pressure. I am proud of the team and players such as Dean Furman, Kamohelo Mokotjo showed us that they want to die for the national team,” concluded the legend.

This is why talk talk and bragging means absolute zero. Some Nigerians saying Rohr should forget humility and playing down our chances, shey you dey see now? I doubt it, but I can only hope you eventually learn.

Better to keep quiet and save your energy for the actual game.

We will never learn, would we? Since that time when our boys in Chile 87 started making mouth gboa gboa, even showing 4 fingers to Brasil in their hotel and on match day Brasil wired us senselessly, na since that day I sabi say making mouth and football nor go together.

That "indomie-Pikin" that compared Musa to Samson Siasia, should check the 3rd goal.

The irony is few years back it would be Nigerians that would be bragging more about beating SA while the Southies would just keep mum and respectfully maintain silence cause they knew levels pass levels... suddenly South African fans got too bold off the their recent surge of success against a Nigerian team that has been their nightmare for a while, while lots of Nigerian fans played the humble "wait and see" game of dignified silence ... how times have changed.
