WCQ: We were better than Nigeria at AFCON – South Africa’s Broos

Bafana Bafana boss, Hugo Broos has maintained he does not fear the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

South Africa are in Nigeria at the weekend to keep a date with Nigeria in the 2026 World Cup qualifying series.

The World Cup qualifying match is billed to hold at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, uyo.

Broos noted that Nigeria were only lucky to have beaten Bafana Bafana in the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations earlier in the year, insisting his team was the better side.

He told reporters at a press conference on Monday, “Everyone of us wants to go and qualify for the World Cup in 2026. We are in front of two very tough games.

“First of all, Nigeria finalist in the AFCON, players who are playing in the best competitions in Europe. On the other side we also saw what we can do against them in the AFCON.

“If we had a little bit of luck on our side, we were in the final and not Nigeria. We were the best team in the semi-finals, we could have won that, so we don’t have to be afraid,” he stated.
