CHAN: Nigeria Scares Bafana Fans

With two days to the top of the African Nations Championship, CHAN, Group A clash between Nigeria and South Africa in Cape Town, fans of Bafana Bafana have been weighing the team’s chances with some saying it was unfortunate that they did not win against Mali, as the Eagles may again ruin their chances of going further in the tournament.
Mahlatse Mphalele writing for the New Age Newspapers, said “the last thing Bafana Bafana needed was an unwanted situation of facing hoodoo opponents Nigeria in the last match of Group A on Sunday faced with having to win at all costs”.
He added that Nigeria may spoil the chances of Bafana in the game and again qualify at the expense of the host.
On his part, Thomas Mlambo, a popular face on SuperSports in Nigeria, said Nigeria should at least leave the CHAN tourney for his home country to celebrate with.
Speaking with Coach Stephen Keshi on SABC, Wednesday night, Mlambo said Nigeria has caused Bafana Bafana too many heart aches and it was about time it ends.
Keshi reacted sarcastically saying the better side should carry the day on Sunday but noted that the Eagles did not travel for seven hours on air to South Africa to be beaten on sentiments.
“As always we hope to give out our best against Bafana because here is my second home”, he said.
