After a goalless first half, Rantie broke the deadlock at the 51st minute with a great header from inside the box when he connected with a decent cross by Mphahlele on the right-hand side.


Bafana Bafana increased the tally in the 81st minute through Percy Tau, who beat the offside trap, rounded the Nigerian goalkeeper before slotting into an open net.

“We do not want to forget that South Africa partly contributed to us not going to the 2015 Cup of Nations,” said Onazi, standing in as skipper for unavailable John Mikel Obi.
“This time, we must restore our pride and make sure we get the three points off them on Saturday.
“Nigerians do not forgive losers easily and it is our responsibility to make the country proud whenever we are in action,” added the Turkey-based midfielder.

The above quoted message were the words of Onazi.. and Unfortunately for Team Nigeria, they lost.

This is coming after we brought you reports about some NYSC members who gate crashed the stadium demanding for a free entry to watch the football match against South Africa.

More details soon.
