Draw With South Africa Dims Nigeria’s 2026 World Cup Hopes

south-africa-nigeria

The Super Eagles of Nigeria failed to defeat the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in the 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifier held in Uyo.

This marks the third time South Africa has remained unbeaten against Nigeria on home soil, in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.

South Africa will play Zimbabwe in their next World Cup qualifying match for Group C.

After a fruitless 28 minutes of play between the two teams, Zwane scored with a beautiful strike that went past Super Eagles goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali.

The scoreline changed as South Africa took a one-goal lead, while the Super Eagles struggled to equalize.

Ademola Lookman and Alex Iwobi tried to find the back of the net in the first half, but they couldn’t, and South Africa’s goalkeeper Williams remained steadfast.

The first half ended with South Africa leading.

Surprisingly, just seconds into the second half, the Super Eagles equalized with a beautiful strike from Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, thanks to a precise assist from Alex Iwobi.

At this point, Super Eagles coach Finidi George began to smile on the touchline.

The second half showed a change in the Super Eagles’ game, with their energy focused on finding more goals to take the lead.

When Chukwueze came in, he created several chances, but none resulted in a goal.

Mokwana and Tau were star players for South Africa, but they also couldn’t score.

Nwabali remained confident in the goalpost, and Tanimu held the right-back position firmly.

Unfortunately, neither team scored any more goals, and the match ended in a draw.

Super Eagles coach Finidi George explained why he didn’t use Victor Boniface in the match.

Currently, Lesotho leads Group C with Rwanda in second position. Nigeria is in 5th position and will face Benin in their next game, while South Africa, in 4th position, will face Zimbabwe, who are at the bottom of the group.
