And one game doesn't make us favourites. Lacking a proper goals galore encounter, this round of 16 match lit the tournament up with a topsy-turvy turn of events that saw the match switch hands several times during the 90 minutes before eventually landing Nigeria's way.
Forward Lebo Mothiba had before the tournament boldly likened the team's training sessions to those of Barcelona, but such boasts seemed foolish as their cautious approach saw them fail to register shots on goal in two of three group games.
Bafana Bafana, whose only continental triumph came in 1996, struggled in the group stages but put together an impressive display against Egypt in the last-16, thoroughly deserving their 1-0 victory and leaving coach Stuart Baxter delighted with what he saw. "The movement around the box was not clear and we had to improve on that". Who do you think will progress?Читайте также: IBM Acquires Linux Developer Red Hat For $34 Billion
"With the Egyptian fans behind us and the new spirit in the team, I see them scaling through".
South Africa, who hosted the Afcon in 2013, beat Nigeria away in their opening match of the Afcon qualifiers in June 2017 - one of Rohr's first games in charge of Nigeria - and were held 1-1 in the return. The scene is set in Cairo for a potential classic between two powerhouses of the African game. "Lorch made his debut and he justified his selection, so these are two players I'm anxious about".
"At this stage of the competition, it is important to have total concentration and avoid little mistakes", he said.
"No‚ we'll go into the game as we do every game". However, South Africa's coach was quick to temper expectations against a Nigeria team that eliminated defending champions Cameroon in the last round. However they came back strongly in the second half, showing enormous fighting spirit to score in the 63rd and 66th minute to take the lead for one final time and shut out Cameroon. Now would be a ideal time to end that negative run.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
