Durban - Gordon Igesund believes South Africa can beat African champions Nigeria when the two sides meet in the Nelson Mandela Challenge on Wednesday.
“This game is important to us and it will be nice to go out there and beat Nigeria, and I believe we are capable of doing that,” Igesund said. “We need to send out a strong message to the rest of the continent that we are progressing.”
Igesund also said he believes the game will be decided by a single goal.
“Nigeria is without doubt a quality team, but we also have lot of quality and it will not be an easy game for both teams. In my view only one goal will separate the two teams.”
The sides will take each other on at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
