    South Africa again? Oh wow. The last time they met in Cameroon, the match was very tough but in the end, Super Falcons won.

    This time around, Falcons really have to work very hard to beat them again this year. Both Bafana Bafana and Mayana Mayana built their strength on one thing which is speed while Nigeria team has experience on their side.

    I wish the Super Falcons a good outing. God bless Nigeria!!!

    @OMO9ja, it has never been easy for Nigeria playing any of the big 4 in Africa the likes of Cameroon, South Africa, Ghana and Equatorial Guinea. But somehow, we always carry the day against them #Experience
