Ejike Uzoenyi: Nigeria will beat Bafana

Mamelodi Sundowns forward Ejike Uzoenyi believes Nigeria will beat Bafana Bafana when the two countries meet next Wednesday.
South Africa take on the Nigeria Super Eagles in Group A of the 2015 African Nations Cup qualifiers on September 10 in Cape Town. Bafana open their campaign away in Sudan on Friday while Nigeria host Congo.
Uzoenyi was part of the Nigeria squad at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but was recently left out of the Afcon qualifiers as he spent a month trying to get his South African work permit.
South Africa have never beaten Nigeria in an official match and the Sundowns player tells KickOff.com that is not about to change.
“Nigeria is the best team in Africa and they are coming to South Africa to beat Bafana Bafana,” Uzoenyi insists.
“We are the best and you can’t take that away from us, we are the best in Africa. We have unbelievable players who can do crazy things with the ball.
“As a Nigerian I wish my country to win, but I also wish South Africa all the best.”
