The Bafana Bafana of South Africa will be storming the Akwa Ibom Stadium Uyo, in South-South Nigeria on Saturday June 10, 2017 in a crucial Group E clash ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with the hope of getting a result that could give them an edge ahead of the Eagles.
The match which is set to be played at 18:00 hours in Nigeria will be the begin of a new era for the Bafana Bafana under coach Stuart Baxter, and expectations are very high considering the test they are about to face against the Three-time African champions.
Bafana Bafana played a vital role towards ensuring that the Super Eagles of Nigeria did not qualify for the 2015 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, after getting a vital 2-2 draw at Akwa Ibom Stadium Uyo and will be looking forward to replicate same when they visit Uyo for the second time.
Unfortunately, neither the Super Eagles of Nigeria nor Bafana Bafana of South Africa qualified for the last AFCON in Gabon earlier this year, meaning a place in the 2019 finals is vital to both sides, pending when the 2018 World Cup qualifiers resume.
Bafana Bafana coach, Baxter who named his official 25-man squad last week,reintroduced the likes of Tokelo Rantie and Thamsanqa Gabuza an act which shows his desire to get a positive result against the Super Eagles.
