Etafia warns Eagles against Bafana

08 September 2014, 16:35

Cape Town - Nigerian goalkeeper Greg Etafia has warned his countryman not to underestimate Bafana Bafana ahead of Wednesday's 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The Super Eagles, who are the reigning African champions, are desperate for a win in the qualifiers after losing 3-1 against Congo at home in their opening qualifying clash.

Meanwhile, Bafana beat Sudan 3-0 to take the top spot in Group A, and Etafia believes the Eagles will have to put their best foot forward in the match at the Cape Town Stadium.

"Bafana Bafana players were given confidence to express themselves," the Moroka Swallows goal-minder is quoted as saying by African Football.

"They are rebuilding and the fact that they don't have mandate to qualify means they are not under pressure.

"Eagles must be at their best, give 100 percent, even 120 percent to beat a very determined South Africa. Their danger man is (Sibusiso) Vilakazi, but they play as a team," he added.
