Mohammed’s view was corroborated by Tabarak Abod who couldn’t control his emotion after the Pharaohs’ early exit from the competition.

“I will now offer my support to the Super Eagles. They are my second team in this competition. ”

    That is a welcomed development to have the Egyptians rooting for the Super Eagles of Nigeria after they painfully crashed out of the tourney being masterminded by the Bafana Bafana of South Africa.

    At this point, the Super Eagles now have a new home to be supporred by a large pool of fans they cannot afford to disappoint. Should the Super Eagles defeat the “Banana Banana”; oh, the Bafana Bafana, they would have done their new home and fans a great favour that will endear more fans to them.

    There are scores to be settled and the match provides the opportunity for that.

    YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE EAGLES I hope is not related to what south Africa just did to you as Egyptians because not so long ago the Eagles got a little doubled whip from the South Africans in their backyard just like you, at list you were lucky to get only one whip from RSA, in your support for them you should conserve a room for disappointment, I still wonder as to who you gonna support after your eagles are doomed again, I love Madagascar

      Once beaten, twice shy. The Super Eagles will not be doomed if they up their game. The support for the Eagles will be a good omen if well utilize.

      U were lucky before , the ref denied us 2 good goals we scored in our last meeting but u ain’t gonna b lucky again this time around. I wonder what in the hell that gave u guys big mouths against the eagles. Talk as much u can, brag as much as u can but remember that the eagles do their talking on the pitch, kwantinu.

        Exactly, the AFCON qualifying match against Bafana Bafana, two “clean” goals were scored by the Super Eagles but were disallowed by the ref. Replay showed there was no offside.

      Naija dey try sha! Kudos to CSN. So South Africans are now coming to discuss football on our platforms. This goes to show how interesting this forum has become and how passionate we Nigerians love our sports. The other day it was one Cameroonian that commented here, today is South African. Keep it up CSN and our ever passionate fans.

    Bafana Bafana speed is a worrying factor. The count attack is second to non, remember the 2 nil defeat at home? We are coming for you fellas.

      Game will be decided in 90 minutes and then the case will be rested.

       
    • Here’s Baxter big tactical plan whenever his team is playing big teams like Egypt and Nigeria. He tells his boys to frustrate and hold the fancied team for 80 minutes. Then while pressing for a goal, 2 of his strikers are stationed in the other half with maybe only a single defender of the opponent and the goalkeeper. Then any chance they get, their goalkeeper or any player close by shoots the ball up to the 2 strikers poaching at the opponent’s half. He did it Nigeria and again in Egypt last week. He is outplayed for 80 minutes and tries willy-nilly to win the game and he and SAns go on singing on and on over a fluke win. This Wednesday, they’ll learn humility again.

      That 2-0 win you guys won us at home was your first ever win against us in 25 years so

      Regardless of Wednesdays result nigeria has always dealt with you in football both in men and women,if you don’t know that Nigeria has always trash south africa In football check Nigeria vs southafrica. Head to head statistics and you will believe in your fucking head

    South Africa has never won an AFCON game against their Nigerian counterparts. They always lost and in earliest friendlies between the two sides, the Super Eagles have trounced them. It is in recent meetings that the tide seems to have changed. I hope it will change back to how it has always been.

    It is a believe that South Africa’ success in AFCON 1996 was as a result of Nigeria’s absence from that AFCON due to political tension that made the Super Eagles not to defend the title they won in 1994.

    I want to believe that the Super Eagles are on a revenge mission while the Bafana Bafana will want to prove that their recent runs over the Eagles are not a fluke. That makes the Nigeria vs South Africa match very interesting and the match of the quarter finals. It is even more interesting because they both in their own right defeated the two finalists of AFCON 2017, which the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon won 2-1.

     
  • That a great moral booster coming from the Egyptians the Super Eagles will never disappoint you guys come Wednesday the Eagles will take a pound of flesh from the Bafanabafana boys.. Bafanabafana has always been the Super Eagles wife so by Wednesday we shall send Bafanabafana to the market.. Up Super Eagles, Up Naija

     
  • Not just South Africans, Baxter is also the most arrogant coach I have ever seen. So full of himself! Listen carefully to his cocky press conferences; he never acknowledges the opposition. If he loses, it’s because his team were not pressing high enough; not his fault or cause the opposition was better on the day. Such braggart! I don’t know why I’m so glad it’s SA and not Egypt. These guys and Baxter sing about the Uyo every second like they won the World Cup. The good thing is that this is going to be a resounding win for Nigeria, 4-0, so no one is left in doubt again.

      Exactly, SA’s coach is an arrogant guy. Watched his interview when his team lost the WC spot to Senegal or so and he said that his team was better than the teams going to the WC and then he used Nigeria as an example.
      I pray we bash these guys with, if possible, double digits.
