2026 WCQ: Unsettle South Africa With Early Goal  –Agu Charges Eagles

Former Nigerian international Alloy Agu has charged the Super Eagles to score an early goal in a bid to unsettle South Africa ahead of Friday’s 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Recall that Nigeria will host Bafana Bafana at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo at 8pm.

Nigeria currently sits third in the FIFA World Cup African qualifiers table after drawing their first two games.

However, in an interview with Completesports.com, Agu stated that the Super Eagles have the firepower to overcome South Africa.

“I am very optimistic that the Super Eagles will overcome their South African counterpart in Uyo.

“But the team must ensure they score an early goal so as to unsettle Bafana Bafana. This will definitely boost the confidence of the players.

“Bafana Bafana are known to be boastful each time they face the Super Eagles, and I am sure they will fall pretty badly in Uyo.”

  • Well, wastefulness in front of goal was the scourge of the Super Eagles under erstwhile coach Jose Peseiro.

    I will be keen to see whether the Super Eagles discover their scoring boots under Finidi.
