2026 WCQ: Super Eagles Must Be Ready For Tough  Battle Against Bafana — Ikpeba

Former international Victor Ikpeba has warned that the Super Eagles must be ready for a difficult test against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa.

The three-time African champions will host Hugo Broos’ side in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matchday three encounter on Friday, June 7.

The encounter is slated for Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.

The Super Eagles are yet to record a win the qualifiers, with two draws against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.

Ikpeba insisted that they must beat at their best against the South Africans.

“The game against South Africa is the game of our lives,” declared Ikpeba on Supersports Monday Night Football.

“Finidi has the players having only recently reached the final of the AFCON, which was one of the toughest ever.

“The boys know what is at stake.

“They have to be focused and make the necessary sacrifices to ensure they beat South Africa.

“It won’t be easy, but it can be done.”
