Okocha names two dangermen for Bafana ahead of Eagles clash

The former Super Eagles talisman went on to add that Tau and Lorch will be all the more risky if they carry the consistency from the Egypt performances - while also adding that he personally likes exciting players.

Should Bafana Bafana overcome Nigeria in Wednesday night's Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal clash, the bonus payment for each player will rise to a cool R670 000.

The result extends South Africa's record of never having beaten Nigeria at the Cup of Nations, while Gernot Rohr's men moved into the last four - where Ivory Coast of Algeria await - with a disciplined, determined performance.

The Super Eagles, meanwhile, have now earned themselves around R920 000 already, as per Nigerian journalist Osasu Obayiuwana, who published the Nigerian bonus structure ahead of the tournament.

After eliminating the hosts, Bafana Bafana will face a tough opponent, The Super Eagles, in the quarter-final of the 2019 AFCON on Wednesday.

Lacking a proper goals galore encounter, this round of 16 match lit the tournament up with a topsy-turvy turn of events that saw the match switch hands several times during the 90 minutes before eventually landing Nigeria's way.

What time does the Nigeria-South Africa game start? "So, we have to adapt and we have only one day to adapt now but I think we will be ready".

Percy Tau, so often the fulcrum of South Africa's creativity, was largely thwarted by the streetwise defending of Jamilu Collins, while Lebo Mothiba didn't quite have the requisite support to truly flourish in the final third - two shots on target across the whole match tells its own story.

"We tried our best against Cameroon and it is our resolve to even try harder against South Africa".

"Dare I say the crowds in South Africa for some worldwide matches are quite sparse as well", he said. "The previous squad, they must just keep them like that because those guys are in high hopes of getting some nice cars, and nice houses, so we are there for them", says Terence Masiza, also from Cape Town.

Nigeria's goals were scored by Samuel Chukwueze and William Troost-Ekong. They actually lost two games in their group and got here by being the 4th best 3rd ranked team and only on goal difference it was very close and in other years they could have been flying home. We know it's going to be even more hard than the Cameroon game.
