AFCON 2019: Ex-NFF president sends strong warning to Super Eagles ahead of South Africa tie

A former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Aminu Maigari, has warned the Super Eagles not to underrate South Africa, in their quarter-final clash at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

Maigari, speaking to SportingLife, said Bafana Bafana eliminating hosts Egypt, should sound an alarm to Gernot Rohr’s men.

“You see in the past, Cameroon used to have advantage over Nigeria in football but now they find it difficult to play us because Nigeria has developed.

“The same thing is happening between South Africa and Nigeria. Their football has developed both male and female, Eagles must be careful not to underrate them.

“Super Eagles need not over celebrate the victory against Cameroon. It was luck that saw Nigeria through, we may not be lucky in the next game, so the Super Eagles must work hard,” he said.

Maigari futher advised Rohr to pick the best players against South Africa.
