Former Nigeria forward Victor Agali believes the Super Eagles to get an away victory in Wednesday’s Africa Nations Cup qualifiers against South Africain Cape Town. Agali has echoed his optimism about Stephen Keshi’s men ability to secure a win against Bafana-Bafana in today’s AFCON qualifier. Shakes Mashaba’s men got of their Morocco 2015 campaign on a good note with a 3-0 victory against Sudan in Omdurman and will now hope to win their first ever competitive game against the Super Eagles at the Cape Town Stadium.
According the Agali, the Eagles are condemned to restore the country’s dignity after their shock defeat to Congo on Saturday. “This game is all about restoring Nigeria’s pride against the Bafana-Bafana. Though, its going to be very difficult, I believe they come out on top,” Agali said.
“It is not an impossible mission because we are a big name when it comes to African football and our presence will always scare off opponents. All the players need to do is put their home defeat against Congo aside, concentrate and go get the goals and I believe with these, victory will be ours on Wednesday,” he added.
Bafana have never beaten the Super Eagles in a competitive fixture. Their sole victory in eight outings came in the 2004 Mandela Challenge Invitational, when an under-prepared Nigeria team lost 2-1 in Johannesburg.
