BAFANA Bafana and Nigeria are set to renew their hostilities in what is expected to be an epic Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) quarter-final.
The match will take place at the Cairo International Stadium tonight at 9pm.
SunSport took to the street to get a feeling of expectations from both fans of Bafana and Super Eagles.
Nigerians living in South Africa did not shy away from showing their absolute support for their home team, bashing the “weakness” of South African football judging by their unfavorable history in this encounter.
Francis, a Nigerian, said the fact that South Africa won twice against Nigeria does not make them a stronger team.
“Nigeria will win by two goals to nothing, Bafana are not strong enough.”
His fellow countryman Eddie Smith shared the same sentiments.Smith puts his money on Nigeria saying they will win.
Said Smith: “Bafana will find it difficult against Nigeria. They played well against Egypt but they will fall short against us. I predict a 2-0 win for the Super Eagles.”
George Fai, a Cameroonian living in South Africa, threw his weight behind Bafana, saying they would get the better of Nigeria judging from their previous match against Egypt.
Said Fai: “The match will be tough but I feel like Bafana will win because they very efficient going forward. Nigeria are sluggish.”
Understandably, Bafana’s stunning victory over the hosts seems to have instilled confidence in their supporters who are looking forward to another brilliant display on Wednesday.
Dumoluhle Sgadule from Kwazulu-Natal said he had hope that the boys would do the nation proud.
Said Sgadule: “Bafana showed against Egypt that we can beat anyone, Nigeria are next”.
