Nigeria’s Super Eagles were humiliated last Saturday at the UJ Eusene Stadium, Calabar as they began their journey to the African Cup of Nations defense on a losing note.
Keshi’s team were defeated 3-2 by Congo who were only in the race after Rwanda got eliminated for fielding an eligible player in their game against the Red Devils.
After the sad loss last weekend, the Eagles are geared up for a game they MUST NOT LOSE against the Bahana Bafana of South Africa if they are to remain in the qualifying race for maroc 2015.
South Africa have never won a competitive game against the Super Eagles, with their only victory against the African champions coming during a friendly game.
Now with FIFA confirming on Tuesday afternoon that Nigeria will not be banned as they earlier threatened, do you think the defeat to Congo will spur the Eagles in Wednesday’s game against South Africa or would it put pressure on the team?
Would a Congo victory against Sudan have any impact on Nigeria’s chances of qualifying for the African Cup of Nations next year?
