AFCON 2023: We’re ready for any battle – South Africa defender warns Super Eagles

South Africa defender Terrence Mashego says the Bafana Bafana are battle ready for their semi-final tie against Nigeria.

Hugo Broos’ side are seeking a place in the final of Africa’s biggest soccer competition for the first time since 1998.

The Bafana Bafana will come up against three-time winners Nigeria at the Stade de la Paix, Bouake, on Wednesday night.

Mashego reckoned the Super Eagles are a difficult side but is upbeat his side will scale through the hurdle.

“It’s going to be a difficult game, you know Nigeria has a good squad but also on out outside we have a good squad, so it’s going to be a very good game,” Mashego was quoted by idiskitimes.

“We’re [confident] in our defence, we’ve gone for four games without conceding, [like Nigeria] we’re ready for any battle.

“I’d say we don’t want to pressurise ourselves, so we just have to take it one game at a time and we might find ourselves in the final.”

South Africa secured a place in the last four after defeating Cape Verde 2-1 on penalties last Saturday.
