Cape Town - Stephen Keshi is no doubt going for broke in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between the Super Eagles and Bafana Bafana on Wednesday.
Keshi listed top striker Emmanuel Emenike, and midfielder Nosa Igiebor in his starting line-up for the all-important clash.
The Nigeria coach left both players on the bench in a 3-2 loss to Congo on Saturday in calabar, but has indicated his desire to beat South Africa by naming the duo alongside Gbolahan Salami in the starting line-up.

Salami scored Nigeria’s second goal against Congo, after Efe Ambrose had opened score in the first half.
The Super Eagles need an outright victory in Cape Town to be in the right spirit and in contention for a place at the 2015 AFCON in Morocco.
South Africa has never beaten Nigeria in a competitive game.
Both sides have met nine times. Nigeria were seven times victors, with one draw. South Africa’s only victory against the Super Eagles was a 2-1 result in a friendly played in 2004.
