Fans To Pay N1,500 To Watch Bafana, Super Eagles Game

By Adeboye Amosu

Football fans hoping to watch the all important 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Bafana Bafana of South Africa on November 17 will have to pay around 60 South African rands (N1,500), reports Completesportsnigeria. com.


Children under the age 12 will pay 10 rands which is equivalent to 250 naira.


Tickets for the game billed for the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg went on sale at stipulated outlets in South Africa on Thursday.


Nigeria top Group E with nine points, one more than Bafana Bafana who sit in second position with eight points. Libya occupy third position with four points, while Seychelles have one point.


The Super Eagles will aim to avenge their 2-0 loss to the Bafana Bafana in the reverse fixture at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo last year.


Gernot Rohr’s need just a win from their remaining two games to book a place in Cameroon 2019.



Nigeria won the AFCON title in South Africa 2013 but has failed to qualify for the last two editions of the competition.

    Quite cheap for a decisive match.

  • It’s partly to ensure the stadium is filled to the brim and probably intimidate the Super Eagles with deafening vuvuzelas and boisterous home support. The 12th man strategy. But Musa and his troops are sure world class professionals and won’t be deterred from their goal, which is 3 points with a loud scoreline.

    South Africans can not stop Ighalo, (2 goals per match), Musa, (a goal per match), and Iwobi from doing what they do best. The motto now for the Nigerians and their Officials is ” to beat the South Africans in their own Home is a task that must be done” The Nigerians are not even coming there for a draw but an outright win. Happy to note today that Henry Onyekuru is back on his feet.
    To my South Africans friends, this is not the Nigerians you played against in June last year. Since that match , The Nigerians have not lost any match to any African Teams. I don’t know if any of you can say the same about the South African Team. With Ighalo, Musa and young Iwobi, they must find the net in your home land. Believe me.

      @edoman, south Africa doesn’t respect Nigeria at all and when talking of football in Africa south Africa suppose to respect a lot of African country let a lone Nigeria. They are still celebrating of beating Nigeria last year June but can you imagine they played 10 matches and won only 3. SA 3-1 BF, SA 1-2 C.Verde, C.Verde 2-1 SA, SA 0-2 Seneg., Seneg 2-1 SA, SA 1-1 Ang, zam 0-2 SA, SA 0-0 Libya, SA 6-0 Seyche, seyche 0-0 SA. If Nigeria draw with SA no afcon for them because Libya would beat them last match. My prediction match 5 SA would lose to big and seyche would lose to Libya. Last match SA would lose to Libya and seyche would lose to Nigeria.

  • This is a very different attack to the one they faced last time. Our forwards are firing on all cylinders now for club and country. A forward line up of Musa and Ighalo (7goals and 5 assists for each other I. The last 3 matches), add on Moses Simon and Kalu either side of them, plus Chukwueze coming on for any of the front 4 (Iwobi, Musa, Kalu) and Success or Osimhen coming in for Ighalo and we have a frightening forward line up.

    A defensive line e up of Troost Omeruo and Balogun should be able to cope with whatever they throw at us and Aina plus Collins launching counter attacks will have them on their toes.

    With Ogu and Agu shielding the defence plus Ajayi and Etebo coming in either for defence of midfield if necessary we are covered

      This is a sucide mission for SA, and just to correct you, Musa and Ighalo has 8 goals in the last 3games (Musa 2, Ighalo 6)

      Let our boys not show any mercy or reduce the tempo when they are leading with a 2 goal margin, like they did against Libya that almost came back to hunt us. They should very business like in other to not only avenge us but also pick the qualification with a game to spare.

    I’m sure it will be the same line up that played against Libya baring any fitness issue. Etebo will surely start with only Ogu replacing suspended Ndidi. Same back four of Ekong Balogun Collins and Aina. Etebo Ogu and Iwobi in midfield. Kalu Ighalo and Musa upfront. The other possibility is maybe to start Nassarra Success ahead of Kalu depending on his fitness. No coach will change a winning team unless if necessary.

  • That price wouldnt stop people from coming to the stadium to cheer the eagles

  • Please what is the equivalent of N1500 to the Rand ? Is it up to 3 Rand ?
