Ahead of the crucial showdown against Nigeria, Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter is making sure all tracks are covered ahead of Saturday’s crunch match with Nigeria in which three points for either side will secure a passage to the 2019 AFCON finals in Cameroon.
Nigeria lead the Group with 9 points and South Africa is second with 8 and Saturday’s encounter will afford the two top teams on who qualifies first from the Group, with Libya visiting a buoyant Seychelles also on Saturday.
With one intense training session on Monday, Bafana Bafana trained twice in blistering conditions on Tuesday and will have a training match on Wednesday at Steyn City School.
In the last three training sessions, the team has concentrated mostly on defensive set up, methodical build ups with greater emphasis on shooting at goal in which the players took turns to rain shots at goal.
As from Thursday, Bafana Bafana will move to FNB Stadium and will wrap up their preparations at the match venue on Friday.
