Bafana Bafana Coach, Stuart Baxter has revealed that he would be monitoring the Super Eagles’ two friendly games against Corsica national team and the Sparrow Hawks of Togo.
The Bafana Bafana play the Super Eagles in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on the 10th of June at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.
“When you look at Nigeria, it’s like the who’s who of African football as most of their players play across the top leagues of the world but that doesn’t always mean it’s a good team but Nigeria has had a run of games that suggests that they are finding their feet.
“We will play them, having spent a three-week training camp in France but we will monitor their games. They will be playing against Togo and Corsica, and I will have a bit of intelligence on them, but I have already gathered some even before these matches,” said Baxter.
Meanwhile, South Africa Football Association have announced that the Bafana Bafana will arrive in Uyo, venue of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nation qualifier on the 7th of June.
Baxter’s men assemble for camp on Sunday, 4 June 2017.
There will be two training sessions on Monday and Tuesday, before the team jets off on Wednesday, to Uyo, via Lagos.
