We Know How To Defeat Super Eagles – South Africa Captain Says

Thulani Hlatshwayo, the Bafana Bafana captain has said that this team are aware of Super Eagles weak link as they face their perennial nemesis for all-important 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tomorrow in Uyo.
He disclosed that his side knows what to do and will exploit the lack of pace in the Eagles’ defence to get a result against the three time African champions. Having never beaten Nigeria in a competitive game, Hlatshwayo knows that it will not be an easy task, although seems confident that they can break the jinx this time.

He said “We know we are smaller than them as players‚ so we don’t want to play the long ball but catch them on the counter. They are big‚ but a bit slow. It is going to be a grudge game for them. Knowing Nigerians‚ that’s how they are. They do have that arrogance they carry around. We have to be humble and make sure we don’t give Nigeria too much respect‚ and not be scared of them. We will not. We played Nigeria in Nigeria. We did well.”
