South Africa Can’t Stop Super Eagles From Winning AFCON 2023 Title  –Babangida

Former Nigeria international, Tijani Babangida has revealed that South Africa can’t stop the Super Eagles’ quest of winning the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations title.

Recall that the two teams will clash on Wednesday in the semi-final at the Stade de la Paix, Bouaké.

However, in an interview on Channels Television, the former Ajax star stated that the Super Eagles must apply the same confidence and fighting spirit they used against Angola to dispatch South Africa.

“Listen, guys, already before the tournament, the whole nation doesn’t have confidence in you guys; you build the confidence yourselves. You have it in your head now that you are going to win the Cup, and nothing is going to stop you,” Babangida said.

“Because you already showed it in the last match [against Angola]. Because it is only the confidence that you show that makes you beat that team [Angola] and the discipline you used in that match, you are the same again against South Africa; you are going to beat them.

“They can make all the mouth and I’m sure no team is going to stand in your way. We are waiting for you to bring the cup to Abuja, and God willing, you will bring the cup.”
