The Super Eagles’ World Cup hopes suffered a setback after a 1-1 draw with Bafana Bafana in Uyo on Friday night in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.

This result marks the team’s third consecutive draw, leaving them winless in Group C and fifth place with just three points.South Africa took the lead through Zwane’s individual effort on the 29th minutes leaving Goalkeeper Stanley Nwabili helpless.

Fisayo Dele Bashiru equalized for Nigeria in the 48th minute. Despite the draw, Lesotho leads Group C with five points, while the Super Eagles trail behind with three points from three matches.

This result is a significant blow to Nigeria’s World Cup aspirations, and the team must regroup and refocus to revive their qualifying campaign. The Super Eagles face a crucial match against Benin Republic on June 10, 2024, at the Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire.

The team’s performance has been disappointing, and the coaching staff and players must take responsibility for the lackluster showings.

The fans are eagerly waiting for a turnaround in fortunes, and the players must rise to the occasion to restore hope in their World Cup dreams
