- Says: We’ll Beat Nigeria
Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund is confident that his side can beat Nigeria in their final CAF African Championships group match.
South Africa must beat Nigeria on Sunday to progress to the last eight of the tournament and Igesund has said that he will send his side out to win the game.
“We are not going to play for a draw,” Igesund said in a Sport24 report.
“I have never in my principle played hoping to get a draw, never.
“No matter the circumstances, I always play for a win.
“We played against Spain and won, so why must we fear Nigeria and settle for a draw with them?
“In each game, I always tell myself that if our opponent scores three goals that means we will score four.
“I have a lot of respect for Nigeria and their coach Steven Keshi is a very good friend of mine but we will beat Nigeria.”
