Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has revealed why South Africa defeated Nigeria 2-0 in their 2019 African Cup of Nation, AFCON, qualifying first leg encounter in Uyo last year.
Rohr’s men will be aiming to avenge their home defeat when they take on the Bafana Bafana in front of their home fans on Saturday, November 17 at the FNB Stadium. Kick-off is 3pm.
Rohr reckons that the three-time African champions lost to South Africa in their first match because the opponents were deadly from counter-attacks and also his squad were without some of the key players. The likes of Captain Obi Mikel, Leon Balogun, Odion Ighalo and ex-Eagles star, Victor Moses missed the first leg clash.
The German tactician, however, said the defeat still hurts, adding that his side want to revenge.
