Ahead of Nigeria’s clash with South Africa in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament, excited football fans have taken to Twitter to air their views on the likely outcome of the match.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles will be facing Bafana Bafana of South Africa by 8 pm today and boisterous Nigerian football fans have taken to the micro-blogging platform to express their fancies.
Meanwhile, Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has described the Bafana Bafana of South Africa as the favourite team to win the 2019 AFCON after they trashed host nation Egypt out of the tournament.
Rohr had said: “When you’re a better team than Egypt, you are becoming the favourite of the tournament.”
But Rohr’s South African counterpart, Stuart Baxter would not agree with the Nigerian coach, saying: “One game doesn’t make us favourites. I don’t think he’s fooling anybody.”
