Nigeria’s coach Stephen Keshi has promised that the Super Eagles will play ‘good football’ against South Africa in the Nelson Mandela Challenge.
The African champions take on Bafana Bafana at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday, and the Super Eagles coach has assured that his players will give a good account of themselves in the game that is expected to help Nigeria prepare for next months’ crucial World Cup qualifier against Malawi.
“Nigerians should pray for the boys to be in good health; if they are in good health they will be able to give Nigerians what they like to see, which is good football,” Keshi told News Agency of Nigeria.
He went on to assure that the Super Eagles will approach the game with all seriousness, even though the match is just a friendly encounter.
“Every match is important for us, especially against an important opponent like Bafana, so we won’t travel six hours from Nigeria to South Africa not to be committed to victory.”
