AFCON 2019: Eagles have already qualified today’s game is ceremonial – Mutiu Adepoju


Former Nigerian international Mutiu Adepoju has wished the Super Eagles the best in their fixture against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa today at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg as the team seeks qualification for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.



The former Real Madrid player who was capped 48 times for the Super Eagles and helped the team win the AFCON in 1994 believes the team has nothing to fear saying he is already seeing them in Cameroon.

Nigeria will lock horns with the boys from South Africa today by 2pm Nigerian time at the 94, 807 capacity FNB stadium which the football ruling body in the country is finding difficult to fill up with the regular South African football lovers believing it will be a waste of time to watch a team that will most likely fall to the firepower of the Eagles.

Adepoju took to his social media handle (Twitter) to wish the team the best of luck in the crucial game. “All the best to our darling @NGSuperEagles today against
Bafana Bafana. You are in Cameroon already”

Despite injuries and suspensions to some of the team’s key players, technical adviser of the team Gernot Rohr has insisted that the team with its youthfulness will pull through in the match.
