AFCON: Super Eagles land in South Africa

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have arrived in Johannesburg for their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa.

Gernot Rohr’s team landed in the early hours of Friday as confirmed by the team’s official Twitter handle.

Nigeria will take on Stuart Baxter’s men at the FNB Stadium and will aim to avenge their 2-0 first leg defeat in Uyo back in June 2017.

After a four-day training camp in Asaba, the three-time African champions departed Nigeria on Thursday evening and landed at the O.R Tambo International Airpor.

They will return to Asaba for Tuesday’s international friendly match against Uganda at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.

The Super Eagles lead the Group E standings with nine points from four games and a win against the Bafana Bafana guarantees their return to the continental showpiece since their triumph in 2013.
